The web site is easy to use and offers good alternatives and feed back for product searches. I was able to register my vehicles for current and future purchases. The online site offered discounts to save me money on my car repair items. The store I picked up the order at was close to my home and the products were ready for me to pick up when I arrived. The brakes and oil changes that I did with $100.00 in parts and supplies saved me $348.00 in labor charges and all the up-charges that they tack onto the parts they use.

      Not Exactly an ExactFit

      Comments about Wagner ThermoQuiet Semi-Metallic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

      Although the pad showed as an exact fit for my 2000 VW Passat 2.8l V6, it wasn't. However, a little grinding of the piston-side backing plate using my 4-1/2" angle grinder took care of the problem. The "ears" of the backing plate were about 1/8" too tall, thus causing the caliper spring to fit improperly. My calipers are "rear mount", meaning they mount behind the axle, as opposed to the "front mount" versions. I don't know if the improper fit is due to this or not.

      The pads work well. I did't resurface the discs prior to installation because they looked acceptable. The new pads were aggressive enough that during bedding they cleaned-up the rotors and provided a very good looking rotor finish.

      After one week of use, I don't see any dusting. My wife reports the pedal feel and performance is normal.

        Bought these for my 2002 VW Passat; they fit perfectly. They were easy to install and I have had zero issues with them. They have not required a break-in period.

              Comments about Wagner ThermoQuiet Semi-Metallic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

              I'm very pleased with these pads. They have the correct pad wear sensor harness. The pads are quiet, smooth and provide great stopping power. I'm using these with Wearever rotors and couldn't be happier with the results. If you're a skeptical or pessimistic buyer (like myself) then you have nothing to worry about, Wagner will not disappoint!
