    I think the dealers do a kit for something like £60 for pads and discs. I can't remember if it for front or rear or both. Give them a bell. I am sure someone else will know better than me.

    Default

    Front pads (parts only about £50)
    Rear pads and discs kit (parts only about £80)

    Personally, buy the parts at the local dealership and have a local garage fit them
    Obviously check with a local garage first to make sure they will do this, and if so what they will charge
    Get a quote from local dealership as well

    Equally, why not just wait until the MoT and see if it passes...
    Ask for (or view) the efficiency rating of the brakes

    All types are available, full price is between £60 and £90 (typically up to £30 more than just the pads)

    I think you will probably find the brake kit from the dealers is the best price. Try Eurocarparts, but If I remember they are expensive.

    i needed my rear pads doing quickly so had to buy brakeworld pads as dealers was shut. They give off so much brake dust compared to original ones that the rear wheels get dirtier than fronts.
