    B9 S4 With different rear brake calipers?

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    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?

    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,
    Vincenzo F.

    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.

    Just so everyone is aware, 2018 S4s with the S Sport Package are supposed to come included with the S logo on the front and rear calipers. There was a malfunction at the dealership but we are in the process of ordering new parts to make the necessary adjustments. Hopefully this helps clear things up a little bit.

    Mine has no S logo's on the rear as well. Purchased the car on 10/12.

    Is this something that I need to contact my local dealer about?

    Correct, we would advise speaking with your local dealership. They will need to verify (based on your VIN) that your vehicle should have come equipped with the logo on the calipers and then make the necessary adjustments. Please feel free to PM me if you have any additional questions.

    Can I send you my VIN to have it verified? Would like to make sure I have everything together prior to going to see my advisor.
