Keep in mind that we got downgraded front brakes on the UrS4/6 here in the
US & Canada.  Ours have the G60s with 276mm rotors from the S2, while the
European cars came with 314mm rotors and a floating caliper with a 4-piston
setup similar to the HP-2 used on the new S4 (may be the same).  They also
used a different strut housing.  The bolt holding the caliper to the strut
may still be a regular hex, but can't tell for sure since our setup is
different.  The Euro FA calls for a "M14 x 1.5 x 35 self-locking screw",
P/N N 905 582 01, if that helps.
