    Try this website: http://brakeperformance.com/

    The website says they have them. But I would call them to verify that before you order. I have bought rotors from these guys for other vehicles and have been happy with them.

    Just heard back from them, and it looks like that is where I am getting my rotors from. All the dimensions are correct and the price is just what I was looking for, I appreciate the help!

    Mind if I ask why you want slotted rotors? I understand slots (and drill holes) add no benefit to daily driving.

    1. Removing material gives less surface area for friction (braking)
    2. The slots and holes serve to more quickly shave down the pad material
    3. Improper machining weakens the assembly and fosters cracking in the rotor
    4. Under ordinary road use the brakes never get hot enough for fading.

    But then again, maybe you are racing your Mirage?

    Also, have you looked into using the rotor & caliper bracket from a 2107?

    I have drilled and slotted rotors and the high performance pads on my car from brakeperformance. They are an improvement over the factory equipment but they are a bit louder. Them being a bit louder does not bother me at all and I have had them for a year and they are still just as good as when they were installed. No pulsating or vibrating at all and I am not easy on them.

    That's how I ended up buying rotors from these guys for my other cars. I got tired of buying quality (supposedly) replacement rotors just to have them develop runout (pulsating) issues later. They also look nice and the zinc coating will delay any rusting. They will still rust eventually...but it will take a few years.
