    Yeh I think thatís all it is the cool factor
    Biggest problem is finding anyone that can machine them.
    Standard rotors are fine but no one wants to touch a wave rotor
    To be honest I think the wave is dog ugly for the fact it donít match the dust shield behind it.
    Just looks odd

    Can save $400 on standard rotors
    What is the real benefit with wave ?

    Zip benefits. No F1 or other race category have identified them as their secret weapon. Just another visual marker to differentiate between brands for those who take the bait.

    And when they need machining down the track, you'll be able to get them done anywhere. I suggest you turn your waves into doorstops.

    Well then you'll probably want to upgrade the seatbelts. The A1 should stop beautifully even if the occupants don't.
