[V8] UFO calipers

If someone on this list knows of a source of rebuild kits for UFO calipers,
I would like to know what that is.

Last year I went through this and searched and searched, my mechanic
searched and searched and to our combined knowledge there are no longer UFO
rebuild kits available anywhere.  Perhaps Bastian can source them in
Germany, but Audi USA no longer does.

In the end, once my car started to be driven regularly, the seeping that we
were concerned about ended.  Eventually, I will need to consider
alternatives I suppose and think that if I am actually driving at that
point, I may replace the UFO's with something else that will have as much
stopping power.  And the struts and that yadayadayada and all that jazz.
Cheaper than buying a new car.


Of course, I may want a 12 cylinder Phaeton at that point....or perhaps a
supercharger for my wheel chair.
