I found these coated Zimmerman rotors for an S4 which are the same size as a W8 - 321x30. The questions is do they fit?

No one knows!!!!!!!!

Well I have done a little searching. The Brembo part number for our front brake rotors is: 25714. The Brembo part number for the rear rotors is 25710.

Chances are the will be the same as the clutch is the same as on the 2.7T S4 so would think most of the bits have been raided from the Audi parts bin. You should phone them and ask them what the offset is (height from front face to the back of the disc)as once you know that you can compare easily. All they need to do is get one out of stock and measure it.

I thought the rotor hats were different... you can't use S4 brakes on the W8 because one or the other has a taller hat (offset), regardless of using the same HP2 caliper.

The Brembo part number for the S4 front rotor is different than the W8 so I guess I answered my own question.
