They look just like the ones on my Westfield after many years of hard use... if you're worried I'd get a knowledgeable Lotus race tech to look at them.

...
Given that those rotors have ~50% life left in them I have to wonder why the tech suggested replacing them. Which also has me questioning his opinion on the bushes...

Maybe I missed it, but how many miles are on this car?
Exactly.
