[Es2] rear rotors from A4 confirmed

John, Mike, and others,

The rear rotors with 5 bolt holes are from an A4 1.8t quattro from 2002-2003
(maybe others). The size is exactly the same as the stock coupe rotors
(245x10), but with 5 holes. The OEM part number is 8E0615601B, they are
readily available, and the price is typically $30 or less.

My rear hubs are the stock pieces, re-drilled for 5 holes, with Porsche
studs pressed in. I have a very early car, and the rear hubs were solid,
rather than the later ones I have seen that seem to be cast. I believe the
stock hubs and the S2 hubs have the same dimensions, other than the number
of holes. The fact that some have redrilled their stock rotors for use with
the S2 hub tells me that the rotor and hub are essentially the same. I know
of someone local that has purchased the S2 hubs and these rotors, and will
be installing them soon. I will let everone know if there is a problem, but
I don't see why there would be.

BTW, I have been running my fully dedicated track coupe (10v turbo) with the
Porsche studs exclusively for at least 5 years, with no problems. I am using
the A8 front rotors with Boxster calipers, and my own adaptor bracket. I
modified the front hubs from a UFO equiped car, so I do not know if they are
exactly the same dimensions as some of the others. I do know that the
splines matched, so it was fairly simple to use.
