Anyone know if the front discs on the Ignis Sport and standard Ignis 1.3 are the same / interchangeable?

Not sure what you mean by don't bother????

Asking because I do some trackdays in my Sport. I put race pads in and also change discs over as the pads are very abrasive. I've been using a second set of discs from a sport (alex.ignis sold them when he did that 4 pot conversion) but they've been skimmed to the limit so I'll need to replace them. Probably easier to find 1.3 discs at a breakers, so it'll be a bonus if they are the same.

he asked whether they are interchangable. Now i read the post that he had the intention fof going from ignis to IS front brakes. They are the same, hence "dont bother" if you are looking at the IS front brakes as an upgrade.
