Replacement rotors

I've been searching for awhile for options on OEM replacement rotors. Until recently, I've only seen one company that makes an aftermarket replacement rotor that is similar to our OEM floating rotor. I've noticed that there was a company in the Audi/VW community that has become very popular for OEM replacement rotors. They even make replacement rings for BBK rotors. I contacted the company and they said they could make an OEM replacement rotor for our cars similar to the OEM design.

I don't have any personal experience with the company but I figured I would share as it might be worth considering for strictly street use. I haven't seen many track cars with these rotors so I can't say how they would hold up on the track.

Here's a link to their website.

For my purposes, no. My car is strictly a street car. I'm just looking for something that is reasonably priced without sacrificing functionality of the OEM rotor design. Others might have different needs though. This thread wasn't really for myself as I'm not due for a rotor replacement for awhile. It was more to share with others that there are options out there. For me, OEM is cost prohibitive because of multiple reasons. There is only 1 dealer here so their parts markup is insane. Shipping to HI is crazy so add that on top of any price you would get online for OEM parts and its just as bad as buying from the local dealer or worse. If I'm going to have to spend that kind of dough (which is not that far from just getting a BBK), I would hope that there would be something on the aftermarket that would offer some type of benefit. Maybe a replacement that does have a reusable hat so that in the future, the replacement can be limited to just the ring instead of the whole assembly.

Racing Brake and Performance Friction both make full floating two-piece replacement rotors.

If you are after OE replacement, you should be able to find high quality aftermarket alternatives made in Germany.

Do both of those have reusable hats?

Yes, both have reusable hats. Both rotors will last longer due to the superior material used.
