I haven't bought for my 2018, but for my 2014 I liked these below (which are for the MKII);
I like these:

Still again those are only REAR rotors. Not front.

Let us know how much they cost, I'm sure most are curious.

Centric makes good rotors, I highly recommend them. Look for coated ones versus non-coated.

How do I determine if I have the 350mm or 375mm front rotors?
Same for 350mm vs 330mm rears?

Any trick without taking a wheel off and measuring? Is it as simple as 2.0T vs 3.0T motor / trim level?
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I asked to speak with the service manger and when I spoke to her she tried to say it was because I most drive with 2 feet. Ahh no Iíve been driving for over 40 years and know how to drive. She then asks do i drive fast? Huh? Yeah I do. But the rotors still should not be shot after 15K. I told her I currently also own a 2014 Porsche 911 that I thrash around way worse than the Q and the brakes are fine. I get the number of Audi NA. They were better and more accommodating. They agreed to Comp the rotors for ďAudi good willĒ. I told him this is my 6th Audi and my wifeís current A5 Cab. NEVER had I had such poor quality brakes on a vehicle. Donít get me wrong I love everything about the Q except the brakes. I know its a heavy vehicle but really 15K on rotors just doesnít seem right. If they go in another 15k I think I will go aftermarket.
FYI, mine started about same time, squealing . They just replaced the brakes yesterday, guess known issue for months. Had to wait a couple weeks for parts. Took delivery 01/2017.

Same here. I'm confused by what the specs really are. Also, I couldn't find front rotors at all on RockAuto, which virtually carries everything you ever need for any car. I guess the Q7 just don't need the front brakes LOL
