no they are not pressed on. In fact if you have ever replaced your brake pads you have almost done enough to remove the rotors.

In order to pull the rotors off simply undo the 17mm bolt holding the caliper in place and flip the caliper up to remove the brake pads. Once the brake pads are removed slide the caliper off the caliper braket and use two zip ties attached to any piece of the suspension which will allow to caliper to be suspended keeping pressure off of your brake lines. The caliper mounting bracket has 2 either 17mm or 14mm (I believe its 14mm) bolts holding it in place. After removing these 2 bolts the caliper bracket will slide off with ease. There will be two philips head screws holding the rotor on your car but do not use a screw driver. Use this tool available at any auto store:


You will place the philips head into the impact screwdriver and using a hammer hit the end of the screw driver at least a good 8 times. After this you will be able to remove the two philips head screws with ease releasing the rotor. If it does not come off immediately just tap it light with a hammer to unseize the rotor from the stud plate.

Reinstallation is just reverse order and this whole process should take no more than 10-15 minutes per wheel.

Hope this helps bro

oem is okay, but expensive. brembo blanks are very good for the money. ($50-75 ea)

ebay is probably the cheapest, but you just have to be really careful there.
