Unfortunately, Audi never sold the guide pins separately. But that carrier on you UrQ, 443-615-425b, was used on a lot of models. So making the assumption that a carrier with the same part number would have the same guide pins.
I have a couple of guide pins that are a hair shorter than yours. If you can give me a accurate diameter of your pin, we can see if they might work.

The one on I do have and it might not even be one of the original pins. Ut it does fit is .389" dia. It fits into the carrier great.

Would the boots be available? I could always use boots from some other calipers i have.

Stupid typos.

The pin I have measureds at .389" dia (9.88mm)
Overall length is 2.435 (61.85mm). 65mm would still work and shorter would as well

Sorry, not going to work. 2.349 X .332. But as I said, this carrier was used on a lot of cars.

Boots should still be available. Alas, they come as a kit with bolts.
