Re: AUII XR8 rotors

the premium brakes require a 287mm rotor, for them you got a couple of choices :
4000Gold, 4400, 5000:
4502, from what i find,

check it urself:

Re: AUII XR8 rotors

phase4, does the discs have the eclipse grooves as in the photo below? If so, you have 329mm rotors (premium) and not the 287mm (standard) discs.

Part No's 506 (available in slotted only, or slotted and X-drilled), and 4506 (4000 series [much better discs], available in slotted only) will fit the early AUII's with premium brakes. Does your AUII have the calipers mounted on the rearside (10 o'clock), or the frontside (2 o'clock) position when looking at the front right head on? The 506 and 4506 will fit the early AUII's with the caliper on the rearside, not sure if they'd fit the later AUII's and all AUIII's (caliper on frontside) with premium optioned brakes, but I'm almost 100% sure they would.

Re: AUII XR8 rotors

Yeah I have the discs in the pic with the grooves, I thought they were 329mm. Yeah its an early AU II with the calipers at the back. So the part no. is 4506 and not 4507 ?

Yes, part no. is 4506 for the 4000 series version, and 506 is for the standard version. The 4507 is the replacement for the rear of a AU T3 or a BA GT(-P) with the Brembo option. Go for the 4506 over the 506, price difference is about $50 more per disc for the 4506, but you get a much better disc. Below is a pic of the 4506 fitted to my TS50. Does the caliper position match?

Sorry, can't help you with that. Heard good things about the Ferodo TS2000 pads, might give them a shot. I currently have Lucas pads on the front and can't wait to get rid of them. I'll be going back to Bendix Advance next change as they've been good for the everyday driving I do. If you do get the TS2000 pads, let us know part no, price and your thoughts on them.
