Have an s6 avant without an engine  I'm about to buy but the seller is difficult to get hold of. Wanted these for a stop gap. Thanks Rich.

Phoned the dealer today. Said he could back order them for 228. I told him I would scrap it before buying them.

Fitted the pads. Great job. Exactly the same pad only no no wear indicator. Just a case of twisting a couple of wires. 35 delivered.
