I was wondering if anybody is familiar with FTE parts. I have to replace my master cylinder & the local parts supplier stocks FTE brake components. I have always used ATE products in the past.

I was assured that FTE manufacturers quality components in Germany & that they're a reputable manufacturer of auto parts for German cars.

I think this is the company. Not necessarily manufactured in Germany. How much are they asking for the part? If over $100 they are too high.

FTE is your only choice on Audi A4s; they made the originals for Audi. Have used their brake master cyls on Audi with good results many times.
