UFO brakes

I'm 1 for 2 getting by Audis past state inspection. (The V8 is in today,
which may make me 1 for 3).

The '91 200 Avant failed.  It needs brake rotors and brake pads all around,
and there is an exhaust leak. I can deal with the exhaust easy enough, but
the brakes have me concerned.

My 200 has UFO brakes in the front. Chris at Force 5 tells me the rotors
are hard to come by. So now comes decision time...  Here are my options,
as I see them:

a) Anyone have a good set of UFO rotors they don't need?
b) Can UFO rotors be turned by a regular FLAPS machine shop?
c) Does BIRA still make adapters available?

Any other thoughts?

What's a 20V Avant worth if you can't get brakes for it?
