Hello friends,
May I ask: Which front discs are you using if not OEM?
As far as I can see it is not possible to find aftermarket discs with only 4,5 mm as the original.
They are all minimum 5 mm thick.
If you could recommend a good place to buy it would be very much appreciated.
Best regards

I want to save weight not gain it.
Thickness is not the be all end all when it comes to weight.

No. They are too expensive for my limited budget. They may have been a bad example. :O Their Ceramic rotor cost $1100 USD for one (one the site I saw). The same company does offer an Iron rotor at $320 USD for one. They claim it saves 150 grams over comparable O.E.M. rotor.

Do yuo know where to buy?
I buy my parts from a vendor who is not a site sponser but I don't know if one of this site's vendors offers this product.
