Options on replacement rotors for AP Racing BBK?

Does anyone here runs the AP BBK (6 pistons front 4 pistons rear, 368mm rotors), and have had their rotors replaced yet? Are you able to find alternative rotor makers to make your replacement rotors?

I did some research online and names like Coleman racing and Poterfield that can make replacement rotors for the AP kit, but when I called them up, they have a hard time finding the correct size/dimentions from the parts number I provided them with.

A trip to the AP racing site is dissapointing as well, I couldnt find any graphs for the rotors that i can send to Coleman or Poterfield.

I dont want to dish out $400+ for one replacement rotors, what are your thoughts on this?

I'm on the market for BBK, so did lots of search, might help.
Stillen(brake pro) is the NA distributor of AP racing BBK. check their site.
Lots of forum vendors also sell AP racing BBK, check with them.

You got a AP BBK, just get the AP rotors.
They should be lasting you a long time. The rotors have a unique strap drive system.

You don't need to replace the hat. I think the replacement come with new bolts and it is very easy to install the rotor on the hat.
