Where did you get _that_ information?

well, excuse the laughter, but this was _not_ a safety recall. And it
was not actually  a safety issue at all, for that matter. It was an
expensive move that Audi made at the time to try to mollify
owners--and to eliminate the numerous, expensive replacements of the
UFO rotors they were doing under warranty. It was offered to owners
(under warranty) but only after having repairs done 2 or 3 times for
brake-pulsation (not squealing) complaints.  Ancient history now, as
fas as AoA is concerned.
