they won't sell them. They're not entitled to.

there is an alternative to the mg-rover ones. Honda 'BB4' Prelude disks. 282mm ones. Then get them re-drilled for the right PCD by a local engineering company. Saves yourself a bob or 2.

what sort of money are the integra ones jonny???

suppose it offeres the option of after market disc's (drilled and vented etc)

they the 25mm thickness ones???

i don't think i could use 23mm as i have managed to warp a set of 25mm zs180 ones on me vi with a bit enthousiastic driving :twak2:

Actually avoid the teg ones, there 5 stud.

You havent warped the ZS ones either. You simply used the wrong pads and the ZS disks well and truely saw to baking the pads to leave cermatite deposits on the disk as the pad material gets 'own3d'.

I never warped mine at donnington after 12 laps. I had proper pads for the application though.

YOur disks are vented away, you dont get that option from going aftermarket and drilled offers NOTHING to road cars. Its just for race cars and reducing unsprung mass.

Theres far too many myths floating about regarding brakes. Warping them is a common one.

brake-eng have had them listed for a very long time, but always out of stock. EBC have also had them listed IIRC and again couldn't supply them.

I guess it depends if it was MGR or Xparts that were stopping them being made as paten parts.
