    Hey peeps,

    I was quoted £80 only last week for fitting rear discs and pads with me supplying... So i would say thats not a bad price which you have been quoted.

    This is my bro in law thats quoted this doing it in his garage. I was a bit man thats high because kwick fit do an oil change for £49 including the oil, plus my local vx only charge £35+ vat for an hours labour.
    So going by that it would cost £91, might ask him wheres my family discount. shock really as he fitted my springs for a pint (but I gave him £30 aswell as a good will gesture).

    i guess it's about the going rate, very expensive these days. and you get hit by 20% vat at the end, this is where the vat rise will affect a lot of people most - car maintenance.
