Hey another question: I have a 1998.5 A4 Quattro and I have no idea if there
are wear sensors on the pads.  I'm assuming there are, but can't be sure
until I take it apart or get home and check the Bentley.  As I would like to
place my order ASAP, does anyone know for sure?  Barring that, can I just
get the pads w/sensors and just not hook them up?  :)
