i got mine off a member from here (big AL88) for 220 its pretty good but does need some work mainly prep work for paint
but you can buy them new for around 1000 but if your handy guy you could make one for a fraction of the cost just have to find a bonnet from the wreckers then cut the bugle out and graff it to a gli bonnet

new update

well while the ran held off today i had a chance to in stall my new disc brakes and do half a service (oil and filter)

once i get my rims polished its gunna like nice specially once the kit is fixed and fitted
also got a quote to repair my rear ticky kit 450-650 depending on time that not painted or fitted so im going to do it myself

so once that and the rims are oh and the exhaust done itll be time for me to save up for
what i really want a cms head and cam (stage 3) all ready spoken to joe so once i have every thing in order itll be time for some real power up grades:D

i did think that too but after having a look around a lot of people have there disc facing the same way as mine are now.

dose it really matter which way they face? is there a wrong an right way, will it change the braking
at all???????

they "look" backwards but someone recently posted up a scan from a rotor manufacturer with a pic which way they go, and yours are correct :)
