I have purchased a complete set of aftermarket crossdrilled brake rotors (KVR) for my 2004 S60 2.5T AWD

The front rotors are ventilated (like the OEM rotors) but to my surprise there is no distinction between the LEFT and RIGHT side. The two front rotors are absolutely identical which means that angled fan blades are turning forward on one side and backwards on the other.

The original Volvo parts (274170) also make no distinction between left and right! I am not a brake rotor expert but this simply makes no sense at all. There should be a left and right rotor so that the rotors are properly ventilated.

I am told that ZIMMERMANN makes the brake rotors for VOLVO but they claim that they are just following Volvo orders.

Has anyone heard of this "problem"?

I am convinced that there should be distinctive LEFT and RIGHT front rotors and that someone at Volvo screwed up! Volvo should issue a recall to fix this problem.

Any comments/suggestions would be appreciated.
