Would a 230mm disc fit in the caliper? i.e. is there 3.5mm between disc and caliper?

I may be interested as i was looking into upgrading but was told that "they had no intention of making any more and that the "boss" wanted £750 for the one remaining set". So i bought a pair of solids instead (not fitted yet) as i was told there won't be any more of them either.
N.B. They charged me over £100 inc. postage for them

Just to give you a ball park, I've just bought a pair of MG TF vented discs off eBay at £20 each & had them machined to fit by a local engineering firm for £50 the pair. (OD reduced, inner bore enlarged and 4 mounting holes drilled)
That works out at £45 per disc.
Photos to follow once fitted.

Standard calliper, split & spaced using this kit http://www.ebay.com/itm/131133016724
EDIT - please note that having tried this kit, got the old chap to machine up a set out of 18mm plate as these where not thick enough to space the calipers correctly.
