    My reason for asking is because a friend of mine is looking for 2-piece rotors for his Mazda 3 Sport. He figures it might be the solution to a problem he has with every car he's owned - the front rotors start to warp between 10 and 20k of driving. Maybe some you guys have known drivers like that...
