    New question here. How long for cutsom hope rotors?

    I ordered a couple of Hope custom rotors a couple weeks ago. I called last week to see if they received the order because I had not received any acknowledgement that they even received the fax. They said they got the order and it would be a while because it has to ship out of England. My question is, how long is a while? Anybody else want to share how long it took to get their order?

    thanks

    Where are you?

    I had mine in a matter of two weeks maybe, shipped out of SoCal. England, huh? End around the patent issue with Galfer maybe? Dunno.

    Okay....so I get home from work last night,

    and lo and behold, there's a little package left on the side porch from Hope. I guess I should have waited another day before I started to get worried about it. I was very happy with the way the rotor turned out. Custom worded for my new Ti ride. I was a little disappointed in how much they charged me for one rotor however. I guess I should have called them and nailed down a definite price before I ordered it. live and learn I guess. I probably won't be ordering the second rotor however. How much did yours cost? Just curious if I should call them on it or not.

    thanks

    $80 for the pair?

    I think I paid $80 for the pair, plus a few bucks for shipping. I'd have to look to be sure, though. That was for 2 165mm "wavy" rotors.

    I was a little ticked that Hope messed up the lettering on the rear rotor. I submitted separate sheets for the front and rear because I wanted them to be slighly different, but Hope put the front lettering on both. Oh well, life goes on...

    WOW!!!!! 80 for the pair?

    They charged me 60 for one, and another 11 for shipping. Seems a bit steep, but maybe it was because I only ordered one rotor. setup charges and such. My original intenet was to order one rotor, and then order the second one in another few weeks as the new ride started coming together. I just didn't have the spare cash to order 2 at the same time. Guess I should have just bit the bullet and did them both at once. I may still order the second one in a few weeks after the tax return comes back. Thanks for the input.

    I believe the lightning bolt died with the M4 when they went to the mono caliper
