"The non Q brakes (front) are 321 615 301 C  239x20mm where the Q brakes are
615 301 C and 256x20mm. They will not fit.  Bob"

"No they are not the same. -Ti"

While Bob and Ti are both correct in the generalization, there are always
exceptions to define the rule. From 12/85+ there were 4000s produced with HD
Suspension/Brakes Option that bumped them up the 4x108 bolt pattern and
identical brakes to the 4000q. I'd assume you've got the 16 spoke Ronal rims
on your car? If you look in the hub area for the part number(on the wheel)
and it starts with 853, you've got the HD brake option. Your ebay vendor may
not know or care the differences, but it comes down to bolt pattern on the
most basic level. Do you have a part number on the box he gave you?
