What size tyres? Your not gunna have much sidewall to protect those new
wheels from potholes

Megabucks I assume

The sports version of the V8, later model S4's, s6 & s6+ & A8 use a 314mm
disc with ATE 4pots. Interesting caliper, uses 4 pads per side. The RS2
used a Porche caliper. None of these are a direct swap onto your car
