I picked up the new 2-piece rotors from Luke last week and also the slotted rears. We installed them on Friday along with SS lines, Hawk pads and flushed all the old fluid and replaced it with Motul RBF600.

The 2-piece fronts were the first ones that Luke got in. If you haven't checked out the pictures Luke posted the fit-n-finish on these rotors is superb. As for fitment they went on painlessly and quickly. I couldn't be happier. Also note that they have actual left and right so that the slots are all going the same direction (read about that issue with other rotors). I have included a link so that you can see pictures of the rotors on the car while we did the installation.

We have had a lot of rain here (it seems like 40 days and 40 nights) so I didn't get a chance to really test them out until last night. WOW! This puppy can really brake now. The car may still weigh a couple of tons but it can now stop as well as it accelerates, and that's saying something.

Great looks, great stopping......that's what you get.

Scrach that, I looked back at the pictures and it looks like 2 piece is on the front! Couldn't figure out how they would work on the rear.

You are correct, the rears are one-piece only and I assume for the reason mentioned. I don't know how they would integrate the parking brake capability to do a 2-piece rotor.

Actually after seeing the anodized blue of these rotors I think I'm going to powdercaot the calipers the same color blue the next time I have it apart.
