[Biturbos4] B5 S4 brakes

It's a two-hole set-up, not like the older Audis.  Some people sell a cheap tool with 
multiple two-hole patterns to fit different cars, but I didn't have much luck with that. 
Ideally you want a tool that turns and pushes -- I ended up using a copy of the factory 
tool -- although plenty of people get by without that.

Is this a simple hex (allen) tool, or one of those strange brake keys? Thanks again.

  Assuming that you're talking about pads and rotors, it's pretty straightforward.  Be
  careful with the connectors for the brake pad warning indicator.  In my experience they
  are very brittle.  For the rears, you'll need some kind of tool for the 
  process for retracting the pistons.
  Good luck,

  Hi all, it's been a while for me since my last post, but my 5kT is on blocks
  and I don't know when I'll get the time to put humpty back together again.
  So to tide me over, I just bought a new to me '02 S4. I'm still hunting for
  a Bentley for this thing... These cars have come a long way from '85; the
  only thing I hope to be able to do on it myself is simple stuff like brakes.

  Any advice for doing a brake job on all 4 corners? Is it as easy as the old
  5kT's? Any special tools I'll need?
