Do you  recommend trying to
sand/machine the disks down?  Thanks.

You've discovered why it's so easy to sell Stoptechs to S4 owners... the  
cost of OEM parts!
Pad imprint creates localized hard spots on the rotor.  Machining  them may 
help, but will unlikely make them "like new" as the grain of the metal  is 
actually changed in a non-uniform manner.  Sanding them will  definitely not take 
enough material.  That said, it will likely help and be  "good enough" for a 
street driven car.
