what price were you quoted for rotors? i had mine replaced with audi
rebuilds that i got from linda @ carlsen. i can't remember how much i paid
offhand, but it was significantly less than my mechanic had quoted me for
"new" rotors. ($280/ea maybe?). still a chunk of change, but those rotors
seem to last forever and i think i read somewhere that there was something
in the way that audi was rebuilding the rotors which got rid of the shake,
rattle and roll. at least my brakes have been vibration free since i've had
them installed (about a year).
good luck in finding a solution that fits your budget. hope it helps.
