Default WRX rotor diameter?

Hey, After much trouble ordering parts from autopartswarehouse.com (getting the rear rotors sent to me when i ordered the fronts) they finally sent me the fronts (which i had to purchase, and if i send back the rears they'll refund my shipping too, supposedly) and I'm out there today, taking off the old front rotors, and things don't look right. the diameter of the new rotors is smaller than the old ones! Does anyone know the proper diameter of the rotors? did the previous owner swap in some larger disks? I measured 29.5 cm diameter on the old rotors, and 27.5 on the new ones. GRRRRRRR! This is so frustrating! I've been trying to change out these things for like a month!

So does anyone know if 27.5 is for the RS or something? or are they the right size and i have big ones on there now? (it looks like the pads will stick over the edge of the new rotors too, so i'm assuming the rotors are too small).

Thanks for the help and listening to me vent.

don't worry, i got it all figured out. they sent me 02 outback RS TS brakes! thanks guys at AUTOPARTSWAREHOUSE.com. I called to complain about the rears they sent me, and the guy ordered the fronts for me so i couldn't make any mistakes, and HE orders me fronts for the wrong car! yes! I will never use autopartswarehouse.com again, and i hope no one else does either.
