2009 Audi A4 Avant: So What Is This Going To Cost Us?

July 27, 2010

So I brought our A4 into the dealer this morning to have the brakes checked after getting a dashboard warning for the last several days.

Since you were all so concerned about the actual brake wear on the car, I attempted to get a photo of the pads and rotors with the wheel off. There was one problem though - no lugnut key.

Yes, our A4 has a locking lugnut that requires a special key and that key was missing from the toolbox in the trunk. Glad I figured this out in front of my house and not on the side of the highway. I did my best to get a picture of the pads and rotor with the wheel on, see for yourself after the jump.

The dealer hasn't called yet with an estimate, but we're guessing it won't be cheap since they were suggesting that the rotors would have to be replaced. Anyone care to guess?
