	I clarified some confusion on my part here.   First of all, the Girling 
60 is a regular (meaning non-UFO) dual piston caliper which can be 
found on all the later 5000 Turbo Quattros, and on an assortment of non-UFO 
100/200/S4/S6 cars.   The pad for this caliper is the 419, which PFC does 
not make.   The 394 is apparently (according to my FMSI book) the pad for an 
alternate caliper for the '90/'91 200 Quattro/non-Quattro.   It may be 
used elsewhere also, I don't know.   The 394 is used in a number of hot 
BMW sedans such as the M5.

	I have a set of 394s in stock currently which are slated to be
returned to PFC, since they are not the correct pad for my car.  If you
determine that the 394 is the pad you need, let me know.
