    If you want a definitive answer then get call an Audi dealer and speak to their parts department. Give them your chassis number and after a bit of shuffling, they should be able to find the correct part number. Armed with this info you should have no issues getting the correct disks. This is obviously if you want standard disks.

    It depends what calipers you have? If you have the lucas ones with the metal spring clip(wire thing) on the outside, then it's 288mm ones, if no metal spring clip, then 280mm.

    Rears on yours should be 232mm solid disks, the ones listed are 233mm, 1mm difference won't make difference, so I guess they are the correct ones!
