Part Details: This rotor features Thermal Stability Profiling for improved heat handling and Thermo-Graphic paint markings for effective heat monitoring. With a two piece design and an AlumaliteTM centre hat, the 5000 series is one of the finest rotors available..
Yea I e-mailed them about those and they said they wont fit, but they will have a set of the 5000s for the JCW around June / July

So since this failed with the DBA's I thought I might bump this and tell you the latest info I found out.

I got a email back from performance friction and they said the might be able to help me out, so I sent in the current rotor measurements and they are going to get back to me.

Local mini guy here runs XYZ coilovers and has brakes which he will install when he gets bigger wheels. I believe he said they make floating discs...

Edit, just checked and the website says this:

"Floating Disc - All XYZ brake kits come with regular brake rotors unless customers specify otherwise. XYZ floating disc is available for additional cost for 303mm, 330mm and 355mm brake kits, and no extra cost for 380mm and 400mm brake systems. As for 286mm brake kit, it comes with regular rotors only, and floating disc is not available for this rotor size."

It doesn't look like it is completely installed on the car yet.

Its just a trial fit. He will put them on when he gets wheels with more clearance.
