Hmm. I'm fairly certain that the A4 does not use the G60 brakes. So
either my info about the 1992- 100/A6 is bogus, or ... we've got two
different calipers which happen to use the same pads?

Can anyone with such a 100/A6 (Sean Ford, maybe?) confirm what calipers
they've got?

I'm more interested in the reverse. If A4 pads will fit a 100/A6 and
those turn out to be using the G60s, then I've found another source
for pads for my 1993 90.

Somehow, I doubt that all of this will prove to be correct.
