Looks like 3B7615302B rotors are on sale from VW right now. Check with your dealer. For example, currently $65 each at ECS.

Hub hole from 67-68mm, wheel bolt holes from ~12mm to 14,3, Troublefree fitting.

For those in the UK (and Europe possibly) www.eurocarparts.com are now listing the 334mm front brake discs for our beasties, ordered a couple last night. Hopefully get them next week following the bank holiday weekend here. Also order new rears and pads as they have a 30% off discount running as well.
Part numbers for the front two are - Left 104441660, Right 104441670.

I would highly recommend it. I think they are much better than the originals to be honest. The machining took not time and was very straight forward. Good luck!

The Merc ones were not sided as they are drilled as opposed to grooved.

It's due to the spiral venting of the disc. The VW ones have an arrow on the bell of the wheel showing the direction it should be mounted in.

Guys, sorry to do the "holy thread revival"...but just been having a search around for a set of discs for my 2003 W8 Estate and checking the parts codes it appears that they are "handed" i.e. left side, right side. Anyone know what the causes the "handing" and are the Mercedes SL500 discs also handed????
Regards, RogerB.
