[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.
