I am still looking for these rotors, but i am highly motivated to buy a set of front rotors as mines have started to squel from the front right

i dont mind buying an entire set

prefer to have rotors with less than 10k as i am just going to slap these on for the summer becuz i will be driving daily in the elise and will stop driving it soo heavily when fall comes around and then will get some off of sector111

Glad you're thinking ahead about your brake rotors, and it sounds like you're going to get a really good deal from MainLotus.

But I'm having some thoughts I would like to share.

1. You should measure your existing rotors. You should know they should be 26mm thick when new, and you should know that the minimum recommended service thickness is 24mm.

2. You should try to accurately determine the source of your brake squeal sound. That doesn't necessarily mean your rotors are too thin.

Perhaps I'm out of line in making these suggestions. If so I apologize.

I really apreciate the insight but my left front rotor has metal gashes like either my brakes scarpped it up or a rock got in there it only makes noise when hot n braking the noise kicks in at when I am going 10 mph or less

That's cool... as long as you've inspected the situation further than "They make noise so I must need new rotors."
