I guess it's not the same hub, according to Jimmy's eS2 site.
895 501 693 is what he has showing as rear S2 hubs. What car are the
895 501 653's supposedly from? Both of you guys are saying they are
for S2's, but the 8th digit is different. Maybe early/late, or
something related to ABS?
Maybe the 8th digit is supposed to be a 5 (because there are more
references to that number on google than Jimmy's, how scientific, huh?
=) ), and Jimmy got his number off the hub but it looked like a 9?
Also, I have to fire up my old dinosaur desktop pc and find an email
that had a super cheap quote on some oem brake rotors. Aside from
that, does anyone know where to get OEM rotors for cheap? Actually,
if I need euro A8 rotors, then maybe I'll need to source them from
5 misc. parts cars
