    Hi All,

    I own a 2013 Audi Q5 Premium Plus 2.0L Quattro . In my Recent visit to Audi Dealership for a 35K service . ( I currently have 30K on Audi Q5 )

    I was advised that I should get my Front and Rear Break Pads and Rotors Changed . This is the current condition :- Front Brakes - 2mm and Rear Brakes - 4mm

    I was told that I should get them replaced . The cost for the OEM told me by the dealer is Front ($ 829 [Brake Pads + Rotors] ) and Rear ($ 829 [Brake Pads + Rotors] )

    I am interested in some aftermarket Brake Pads . Below are some options that I have researched

    Brake Pads :-

    Genuine Audi - OEM

    Bosch BP1386 QuietCast Premium Disc

    Akebono EUR1018 Brake Pad

    Brake Pads Rear - OEM

    Brembo Brake Pad Set - Rear
    2009-2010, 2013-2016 Audi Q5 Brake Pad Set - Brake - Brembo, Rear 09-10, 13-16 Q5 Brake Pad Set - 30421-01177520 - PartsGeek

    One of the things that the person at dealership told me is that he has heard from lot of people who put aftermarket pads tend to feel squeakiness and they come back again and get OEM ( I am not sure if he was telling this just to sell me )

    Please advise me which of these will be the best in terms of the long run , no squeaks, good stop, low dust , low noise .
