    What is your s4 caliper made off, cast iron or alloy ? If its cast then the other a4 wont fit, if alloy then any a4/a6 FWD caliper will fit as they are made by Lucas...

    im sure its ally mate, im positive its made of ally but i will check first. the A4 is a FWD so might fit, if its cast is it made by Girling(or how ever you spell it)

    It wont fit, because the Alloy caliper on a facelift S4 is extra wide to accommodate the Vented disks.

    It also has the same M10 fluid connection as the earlier steel calipers, rather than the M12 banjo the later FWD cars got.

    he needs a facelift caliper...

    Twiggy that looks alright, bar it having the wrong disk size. Shouldnt matter though, as the carrier sets the disk size.
