    B9 S4 With different rear brake calipers?

    So I just bought a new 2018 Audi S4. Absolutely love the car, but noticed the rear calipers dont have the S emblem like others Ive seen.

    Is there a reason for this?

    Other cars with the S emblem:

    Hello,

    I was able to determine some additional information for you. The "S" logo on the rear calipers werent omitted on your vehicle, all the 2018 S4s with the S Sport Package come equipped with 4 red calipers, and only the front calipers come with the "S" logo. Since we center the "S" logo on the front or most visible portion of the caliper, there isn't enough surface area to print another "S" logo on the rear calipers. Hopefully this helps clear things up for you, let me know if you have any further questions.

    Regards,

    Can you please double check the above response. Other S4s with the S Sport package have an S logo in the calipers. See examples below I grabbed from cars.com. My neighbor also has an S4 with S Sport package and his rear calipers also have the S logo.

    I work at an audi dealer and went out to the lot. I can confirm that the 2 s4's we had with red calipers have the cover.
