250K in KM should be around 160K miles or so.

Ah, gotcha, then 250K is quite a good number to hit.

How do you keep from getting a ticket? mathematically adjust on the fly?

mostly just stick with the flow of traffic, also remembering what 35,45,60 and 75mph is in kmh helps it also confuses the crap out of my friends that tries to drive my car
grillaga, thank you
shortly before the 250, she got a few upgrades, so a few less noises, stops pretty dorn good, and im loving the handling now

I notice you swapped the engine in 2008 so the engine has 250K or the body?

Good shot with the EBC, they should be x-drilled,dimpled and gold colored?

I put black dash slotted on the A6, really wish EBC made them for the 90 as they are great.

Still not a spec of rust on them, their paint job is excellent.

ATE and Zimmermann start to rust soon as you get them on although the new Zimmermann coated [went on my front] have stayed pretty spotless.

the engine has about 50k less then everything else.
the EBC's are not cross drilled actually, they are dimpled here is some info on them http://rpmware.com/catalog/group/63415 the coating is aether copper or bronze plating which wears out in the first 3 times you brake
I must say, 3GD Series Dimpled and Slotted Sport Rotor are friging amazing, it feels like my front end is about to get ripped out and passed by the back end. the only down side of these rotors, if you try to brake at about 60+mph, the brakes are loud, they stop grate, but they are LOUD, kinda scary at first.
the black ones appear to be a batter design for every day use... but they dont make them for our cars:-S

True, I should have said slotted and dimpled. They do bite like a bitch especially with EBC Ultimax pads.

The coating I thought was zinc-cadmium and yeah it will wear on the face but the rest will stay spot free.

Still not a drop of rust on the blackdash, non face of course which is nice.
Nothing looks worse then rusty rotors through nice rims.
