I doubt it about the hubs- the G60 conversion rotors are not the same as
5ktq rotors, they are the same as the UrS rotors. That would pretty much
the hubs incompatible (the 5ktq hubs, that is).

Precisely. I am doing a UFO to G60 conversion. I should have been

I'm sure you are correct on the urS4 parts being the official Audi
"fix", but I think the later 5ktq and 200-10v/converted V8 and urS4
wheel hubs are the same. A quick check of ETKA tonight will tell the
tale though.

My UFO rotors are not warped and I do not have any plans for them as
long as I can get this conversion done.

I would like to get the old girl officially ON THE ROAD before I get rid
of the old parts though.

Do you know where I can get a pair of urS4 (or equivalent) wheel hubs?

Any help would be most appreciated.

I presume you're switching from UFO's?  I think the Audi-authorized
conversion was to go with the S4 front end parts,  not the 5ktq.

So is there anything left on your UFO rotors?  I'd be interested in them
if so, even if they warped some on you.
