Excellent fit and finish
Amateur mechanic, years and years of experience. To be honest I had not heard of Nakamoto brakes until I visited 1A Auto’s website. I had previously purchased parts here for my Toyota Highlander and happened to be in the market for brakes for my Audi. Anyway, I have had the Nakamoto brake rotors and pads (plus hardware) on the car for about a week and I am happy to report the kit is a winner. Everything fit very nicely and the quality of the parts is first rate. Super nice packaging. (Sturdy boxes and all parts shrink-wrapped or bagged.) Even the slider clips snapped into place and stayed in place perfectly. When is the last time you had clips actually fit without having to bend them to make them fit? Even OEM ones. They are usually a pain. Not these. My car has the big brakes from the 2005 S4 so they were pretty good binders to begin with. But with the new Nakamoto Performance brakes the car stops noticeably better. “Track day” grade? Well maybe, but what I like is the progressive feel of these ceramic pads. No more “Audi grab” i.e. that annoying initial bite as exhibited by semi-metallic pads typical of European cars. Much-much smoother around town. Of course the whole story is not told until some miles have been racked up. I will update this review with more comments once I’ve had some history with the brakes. As for now I continue to be impressed every time I drive the car. Update: June 9, 2018 About 3,100 miles on the brakes since installed. Every day (sometimes spirited) driving, mixed city/highway. After a few hundred miles I noticed much better stopping power as the pads and rotors seated in, yet they still have a smooth progressive feel in slow city traffic. The rotor slots and vent holes can be heard buzzing but only under hard-hard braking. I had a couple of occasions to really “stand” on the brakes on dry pavement. Wow. I think I lost a tooth filling. Hehe. Amazing stopping power. Just gives me another level of confidence in this already great performing car. Outstanding!

How good do these brakes work ?
Korey on Oct 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely fantastic brakes. No dust, and much more stopping power than factory Audi. Bed them in properly, and enjoy! Several thousand miles after the install, and there's NO sign of wear. I'll buy these again and again.
