    aren't you supposed to fit disks in pairs?

    I know I wouldn't be using one old and one new disk on any car!

    Well if your insisting on using mismatched old disks (i presume they are very expensive new for you to be taking that pikey approach?) then its probably worthwhile taking them to a machine shop and having them faced on a lathe to ensure the surface is properly flat before fitting them with new pads.

    if they are prohibitively expensive to buy new its probably worthwhile getting some bells machined up in the correct offset and pcd and buying off the shelf rotors in the correct size. Rally design do universal bells in various offsets that would just need machined to the exact offset for the audi calipers and then the appropriate sized rotor bolted on

    Yes i agree i know someone with a disc referbisher at a garage if not ill use my local machine shop to get them grinded down as if you use a lathe you can put inconsistancies into th disc, im a engineer by trade and know of the importance of changing a pair of discs at the same time. This pikey approach is the only way i can or could get hold of a pair of discs without paying the earth for them.

    But this is worth looking into as a more sustainable source for discs. Suppose its just the initial cost of making the bells then you recoupe when you change the rotor.
