Wow!  Really?  Is that the same hub as the rear of a 2002+ A4q, which
I heard shares the same brake rotors as an S2?

That's sweet!  That means maybe I'll only have to pay for the e$oteric
front ones.

Hmm, now that I think about it, it's not as huge of a savings as I
assumed.  At $700 from europarts for all four, this one is at $290 for
(perhaps the cheaper/smaller) half.  Even so, money savings is money
savings!  =D
