R56 2009 John Cooper Works Brake Discs

Hi Guys,

Just after a bit of advice on where best to order replacement brake discs for my Mini (as above).

I've searched the usual websites, but I don't feel certain I'm getting the right items.

I've found some listed on Euro Car parts at £54 for the front pair. But everywhere else seems to be significantly more expensive. They are Zimmerman branded. Does anyone know whether they are the correct parts? and if so, Are they any good?

Here's the link: Brake Discs | Brake Discs and Brake Parts for any car (You'll have to choose the correct variant from the drop down box on the left if you're having a look).

Final question, is it actually worth going for drilled/grooved? Do they make any noticeable difference?
