Phil, Dan-
If wheel clearance is not an issue, I'd go with system 2, mainly due
to the fact that you can source S4tt rotors easily as well as the
of 2-piece "replirotors" with better cooling capacity that you wouldn't
to buy immediately.

I have S2UFO, which has more clearance issues than your cars, but I love
braking ability that I have and lots in reserve.

Your question happens to be one that's on my mind at the moment, as I 
recently decided to participate in the Sys3 group purchase (use of 
16" wheels a motivating factor--no pun intended). I, too, wonder 
about availability of the euro A8 rotors--at least in the long(er) 
term. Would there be any demand for that rotor in the USA besides the 
relatively small number of Sys3 owners? I suppose it'll always be 
available on special order from Europe, and the prudent Sys3 owner 
will (or should) have an extra set of rotors on hand. It would be 
nice to know if there's a domestic vendor (or two) who is commited to 
maintaining a reasonable supply of that rotor...
