I may have been the source of that mis-information from a long way back...
turns out I was partially right...just not for UFO brakes.    type 44 Audis
with conventional Ate (single piston) calipers use an FMSI D394 pad...same
pad as used on many (not all) BMW  5- and 7- series cars thru the '90s
(probably the same caliper).  The V8 and '91 200q20v UFO-brakes also use a
single piston Ate caliper, but as we know, with a different config.  mea culpa.
