Just to nit-pick a wee bit... these (...301A) are A8 rotors. Audi labeled
the section A8/S8; but, the S8 rotors (...301B) are 345x30 and have a
different, I believe, hat offset.

Hi Matt:

They were around $180 about 4 years ago, I guess inflation and the strong
euro has increased prices.

They are 323x30 from a 1999>2003 A8L or S8, part number is 4D0 615 301A

I don't use loctite, the torque setting for the bracket to strut is 90
ft-lbs and the caliper to bracket is 75. New hardware is recommended.

Probably, but I use OEM rubber from the type 44 cars, 405 mm long, part
number 443 611 707C for like $20 each.
