    Have you actually found any reference to the rear calipers, or is this simply an assumption that it is there? I have read through the S4 manual (online version) several times before taking delivery of my car, and searching through it now there is nothing descriptive of the rear brakes. Also, the link provided does not have current manuals (most recent is 2014 models), the official source for an online manual would be at http://ownersmanual.audiusa.com/ where you plug in your VIN.

    On the surface it appears Audi has implemented cost-cutting by removing a trunk light, a bag holder, rear fog lights, and now the original S model brakes themselves. This may not bother some customers, and overall it is recognized that these are fairly minor changes. However it is the principle that rankles me. We are paying the same amount for a car that has those things, yet Audi believes they can hoodwink the customer and expect them to suck it up, hoping we won't notice or make noise. It is silly to think we wouldn't notice in the age of open internet (exception for China) and owner's forums such as these where we can collaborate as a group. Simply shrugging one's shoulders and allowing them to get away with it only encourages this behavior.
