[200q20v] Help-UFO brake problems!

Ok, I've had my 91' 200 for about a year now, and love driving it.  Had my 
warning indicator for the brakes come on last week, so I took her into 
Werner Masterwerks today.  BAD news-the UFOs are shot, and I need new rotors 
and pads.  And the rotors cost a ton.  And I am, of course, currently 
unemployed.  Have been looking into brake options, but am not sure which way 
to go.  For right now, want to go the cheapest way possible-so that means

a) finding a used set of rotors somewhere, or
b) back/updating the brakes to the non-UFO spec.

For option (a), does anyone have a used set they want to sell?  (And just 
how big of a pain will it be to do the UFO's myself?)  And for option (b), 
does anyone have any advice about this?  Should I scavenge the brakes from 
an earlier 100/200 non-UFO setup, or buy the upgrade kit the shop says Audi 
sells to replace the UFOs?

And (in the longer term, when I can afford it) does anyone have a preference 
as to brake upgrades?  2Bennett and Moveit have kits-any preference?  Other 
suggestions?  Thanks for the help.

Ron Merrell.
