[Es2] 5 X 112 hubs for '90 coupe quattro

Alright, here is where we have a disconnect. The 1993 90q uses a different
front hub carrier (8A0 407 257/8 A) than the 1990 coupe quattro (895 407
241/2 F). Maybe that is why the urS4 gear didn't work for you.
The urS4 front gear, does work, perfectly, on the 1990 coupe quattro.
A MAJOR point of clarification: Rich, in Seattle used an A4 Stoptech kit on
his 1985 turbo quattro coupe (aka urq) NOT a coupe GT. The urq strut/hub
assembly allows ANY brake kit designed for the 5000tq, 200tq (non-UFO) and
A4 to be used on the URQ.
Also, the hubs on a 1.8T A4 are different that the hubs on the V6 A4. I
have been told, but have NOT BTDT, that he FRONT hubs from the V6 A4 are
the ones you want for the REAR of a 1990 CQ.
