Default rear brakes

just a little bit of info gents

changed the rear discs and pads on my a8 the other day and had a little shock
i was able to change the discs and pads WITHOUT REMOVING THE CALIPERS
this is the first car i have ever known this to be possible
a very pleasant surprise as it looks like the bolts which hold the calipers on are difficult to remove (m14 spline or triple square)

the discs were 356mm rears

hope the info helps others
