    I need some brake pads ASAP. I know all the places to order Axxis online, but I was wondering if I can waltz into a store anywhere and buy them, or something of similar quality. Thanks!

    As the title states. I need to replace my Axxis front brake pads and very short on time right now. Anybody know of good deals on these pads? TIA

    Mine didn't. Not like the stock pads. I'm talking about the electrical connection for the wear sensor. It was the right connector and it fit but they just didn't clip together. I broke something when I was removing the worn out pads, but I think I broke the pad side of the connector. The...

    I bought a set of rotors (front and rear; 4 total) from S-Class's Marketplace deal a few months ago. I never got around to installing them, and I just sold my car. So, I am selling them for $150.00 shipped. I also bought some Axxis Ultimate brake pads (front and rear) from their web site. These...

    So I took the advice of many club members and replaced my worn brake pads with PBR Axxis deluxe pads. I did the job myself and used the anti-squeal goo, first time I've ever bothered to use this stuff. After about 2,000 miles the pads started squealing faintly, now I've got about 3500 on the...

    It is time for me to get new brakes and I need some advice. After looking at the other threads on here I was all set to get the Axxis Deluxe plus. Then I read in a few places that the Axxis pads do not work well when they are wet. Since I live near Seattle and see lots and lots of rain this...

    Are the Axxis Delux plus pads (manufactured by Bendix Mintex in Australia) the same brake pads as PBR Deluxe pads? the reason why I ask is people refer to their brake pads as PBR/Axxis in all the searches I've done. If they are different, which would you prefer if you had to buy again...

    Recently I replaced my brake pads with PBR Deluxe Plus Brake Pads all around. I also replaced the rear rotors with cross drilled and slotted ones from S_klass GB, but left the fronts stock. Ever since I had the pads replaced my rear pads are squealing like crazy. The front pads don't make any...

    I follow a couple of Volvo web sites in addition to several for VW. PBR brake pads are mentioned for replacement for both brands. The Deluxe pads are frequently recommended for the Passat. In fact I just bought some for my 2003 Passat. Haven't installed them as of yet. However, on the Volvo...

    Finally got my Axxis Ultimates, new plain rotors - Brembo (F) and ATE (R) OEM's - and the TyrolSport front brake caliper mod from the last GB installed yesterday on my 03 Variant at 55K miles. Finished up near midnight which worked out well as I then went out on traffic free roads to bed the...

    I'm just about to purchase my components for my upcoming brake job on my 99 B5. Looking at the Zimmerman Cross-Drilled Rotors from IRP and using the Axxis Deluxe plus pads. I wanted to get last minute "real" feedback from anyone who is already running this setup. How many miles do you have...

    Hey all...I ordered some Metalmaster front and rear pads a few months ago. Anyone know the correct part number for the pads with the sensors? Or what should I be looking for to make sure they came with the sensors? Thanks

    I have a full line of Axxis Pads and I can offer them at about 10% off to whoever is interested. It'll be interesting to see how this works. Here's how we'll do it, instead of cataloging everything in this thread, which probably won't work well because everyone has different calipers on their...

    Just got off the phone with Dave from . They carried the Deluxe Plus pads I was looking for (also carry the Ultimates), and had a fair price (for my 2001.5 F $66 R $35...Cheaper for an older B5). I do not know if this is the least expensive place to buy these pads from, but they...

    Is the cheapest place to buy Axxis Ultimates, for the fronts? Anyone else have a source? Thanks in advance - B

    Anybody out there have the part # for the axxis ultimate front pads? I've tried the search and can't find it. Also, do these have a place for our sensor plugs to plug into? I have the power slots and my ride is the V6 2001 if that matters. Thanks for any info.
