Hey,<p>Its time for me to replace the rotors on my R. I would appreciate any suggestions on where to get new rotors at a good price. They don't have to be OEM and I need to get front and rear. <p>Thanks!

Just a bit more than OEM, but worth it.<p><A HREF="http://www.drt-sport.com/bigcell.php?i=878" TARGET="_blank">http://www.drt-sport.com/bigcell.php?i=878</A><p>

Dont waste your time with the Volvo ones .... <p>IPD ones are much much nicer and cheaper <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>volvos rotors have a unfinshed surface on them so they really tear up your brake pads the first few times you use them. <p>The IPD ones have a finished mahcined face. <br>and made to volvo specs also. <p>

Put the big bolt back you only need to remove the small one at 5-6 oclock in the pic.

Take the caliper out - two bolts holding it, look behind it.<br>2. Take out the small bolt holding the caliper, IIRC it's a 10mm or so, you can't miss it, it's right there in front (where the wheel would cover it).<br>3. Bang the caliper until it breaks loose, inboard/outboard/whatever it takes.

No one make a vented rear, you should stick with the OEM rotor for the rear.

Re: (Chilled Man)

For the right rear, do you have to do anything for the emergency brake to get the rotor off. Vaguely remember on VADIS saying something about it...<p>Also, any more review on the DRT rotors? Looking at them for replacements soon...
