viggen rotors on 9-3SE

I searched and all I could find is this one thread with a link to a whole kit from PFS, but ~$650 isn't exactly a good deal or worthwhile IMO.

Does anyone else make the adapters so that I can put the larger (308mm) rotors on my car? Other than looking at a junkyard or buying new from the dealer.

P.S. The reason I'm looking to do this is not for performance, as I know the larger rotor will make almost no difference since I am using the same caliper and pad, but I want something that fills my 18" wheels a bit better (cosmetic).

best bet is to search junk yards for wrecked 9-5 aeros or viggens and find the caliper carrier

so I can use the carrier from a 9-5 Aero or '99-'02 Viggen? would that be '99-'01 9-5 Aero models? or will other years work as well?

i *believe* any 9-5 aero carrier will work, but am not 100% sure.

Whoa, rope them ponnys in for a second. The physics of the larger rotor acts as a circular lever. They further away from the fulcrum, the less force is required to do the same job.
