To add to this discussion, which is spilling over from other threads, it is possible to cast-perforate rotors. It's not a myth, but it is the latest internet "bandwagon" to say it can't be done. Yes, many brands are simply machine-drilled, but that's not the point.

We can do cast-perforating with our foundry, but choose not to for practicality and cost reasons. It would end up that we would have to charge the same as BMW Motorsport perforated/floating rotors, about $450/pair, and that's infeasible for non-M service replacement parts.
