   Those are the same as the V8 brakes, and quite expensive... (rotors about 
   $500 each). There was a conversion for these that used the regular 200 
   rotors. Seems like a good idea to me!

But are they really problematic?  Right now for my '84 4000Q I'm
shelling out $250/section for the muffler system and it only lasts
about 3 years.  $500/disk...seems a bit steep...I could believe $500
for two.

Any 200TQ owners out there care to enlighten me?   I sort of itchin'
to buy...
