Not true.
Put it this way:
A4 2.0T~IS250
S4~ IS350
RS4~RC-F

Even the S4 costs more than a IS350 (Because European are generally more expensive) it still costs much less than a RC-F.

What tires are you looking for .
for example:
Conti DWS
225/35R19 25.2"
265/30R19 25.3"

235/35R19 25.5"
275/30R19 25.5"
So these two combo would work.

Yes that's the correct size for AWD system as long as you keep the OD the same @ 25".

You are running wrong size of tires.
You need to keep the front and rear at the same or very close overall diameter.
To keep your speedo and odometer correct you need:
F225/30R20
R255/25/20

I had those brake pads on my other car before (S60R Brembo).
