Sweeet car,
Was in Rotterdam/Amsterdam at the weekend (for the third time) Holland is great,
I did notice the Dutch have a sweet tooth and judging by your boot full of goodies you have too.
Looking to get round 'the ring' in the B6 at some point, but after a track day (as you have found) you really notice how standard brakes on heavy Audi's are just not up to heavy use! Some race pads iam sure will definitely help.

Holland = tax country, lol.

As for the brakes, yes they are underpowered. Having different pads only extends this for a very short amount of time, but no huge numbers. At the end of the day it's still fading huge after a few corners and heavily braking.

Knowing that tracks only occur a few times a year, i dont think it's worth it for me to switch to keramic brakes. They need to be heated up properly as well and thats not really suited for daily use.

Personally i'm really pleased with the stock brakes of an RS4 B5. I had todo 2 times a emergency stop and trust me, that boat stops right when you want it. The side effect is that brake warping occurs very quickly.

For my work i am weekly in Amsterdam. But you should never park your car without a decent alarm or security system in either amsterdam or rotterdam. Problem is is that these cars get stolen often, and usually set on fire after a robbery and all.

It's a plague.

How is the all powerflex drive?

Much stiffer and more solid, esp in cornering, but some said if you dont maintain the powerflex with lubricant once in a while it will start sqeeking at minimum movement and all.

On the ring it's a blessing; hard cornering and well balanced.
