"Less messy" is because you have to touch the wheel bearings? How often do you actually change brakes in this car? I have a hard time seeing how this makes any kind of financial sense. B-body rotors are so inexpensive that it's cheaper for me to buy new ones than to have the old ones turned when I do brakes on mine (and I have the 12" rotors). It takes me about half an hour at the most to do the front brakes, and most of that time is spent finding where I left my tools last.
