Errr

So they are handed

J will go on left side, L will go on the right side.

So they will face front of car.

Or am I missing something
It's probably me.

Ill nip out and take some photos now.

If the manufacturer say they aren't directional then it doesn't matter a monkeys nuts which way they go

So what i have now is the J hitting the top of the calliper driving forward ?

From what you lads are saying i need the L hitting the top of the calliper going forwards ?

So ive got the discs on the wrong side ?

Ahh right so you think that the discs should be on opposite sides to each other.

Everything I've read by googling, is what I've already said, that its the internal veining that's important. So if this is non directional the grooves, drilled holes or J hooks is purely an aesthetic choice.

But this may help you. Picture of the left side (of the driver) on a track based Nissan GTR which DOES have directional internal veining. And the "Hooks" are the same orientation as yours.

So if that orientation is good enough for the front brakes on a track GTR, pretty sure its fine on the rear of a Leon ;)

:ROFLMAO: Yep im sure they will.

Leaving them as they are then as the veins are straight anyway.
