Yes I'm forgetting you need S2 rotors.  I went right to bira system 2
which is neuS4 rotors so never priced them.  Rick Houck did just redrill
CQ rotors however.  And I'm surprised to hear of any price difference
btw S2 and urS4 hubs, my S2 hubs were $60each used (5 yrs ago) which I
assume is pretty close to a wrecking yard price for urS hubs, but maybe
not.  As a % of the total cost however (new bearings, lots of labor)
parts cost differentials for the hubs seems minor.  I'm just
philosophically inclined (reinforced by experience) to use stock parts
whereever possible.  Part of this is that I rarely have time to do any
of my own maintenance, so if pieces are stock Audi, service people are
less intimidated.
