    RS5 Ceramic Brakes

    Do the optional ceramic brakes replace the front only or front and rear brakes?

    The US order guide says "Ceramic front brakes, front and rear calipers painted grey".

    The Canadian order guide says "Ceramic brake discs reinforced with carbon fibre, with specially designed ventilated cooling channels. Anthracite-colored brake calipers with the "Audi Ceramic" logo in the front and rear."

    I have one in my showroom with the Dynamic Plus Package (includes Ceramic Front Brakes), and every-other available option. It has ceramic front brakes and steel rear brakes.

    It says the same in the Audi UK and Germany websites. Audi Canada website's info on the RS5 brakes is wrong.
    Current: 2016 S5 in Sepang Blue with Technik Package.
