WTB 1.5 Roadster brake discs, front. email at eric at ericvfx.com
Tesla must want a fortune for them?
maybe it would be a good time to see if an aftermarket one will fit?
I remember seeing a thread about the Pontiac G6 rims fitting on the back of the Roadster. So there's some chance the rotors for the G6 would fit.
Our local auto parts store listed them. I think they were about $380/ pair. For that price I would get a quote on having some custom made by a local machine shop out of different material. You're OK in Cali but out here they rust if you so much as breathe on them. The Model S rotors are better but the best ones are on the Volt - it's hard to make them rust but they still stop fast and conduct heat very well.
When you say discs do you mean rotors? They're the same as the Elise right (along w/ the calipers, pads, etc)? So there have to be a ton of aftermarket options since Elise's are popular track cars and therefore need regular replacement.
The Elise has 4 lug wheels, so the rotors have 4 holes drilled in them instead of 5. When I was confirming that up with the googles, I saw pictures of the 2015 Elise which has 5 lug wheels. So the rotors and wheels from that might fit on the Roadster.

I believe EBC sells 5 lug slotted rotors for the older Elise which should fit if the bolt pattern is the same. I run EBC slotted rotors and brakes on my truck and love them.
Also the Lotus Europa uses a 5 lug (5x110) bolt pattern that may fit.
