    Default Brake Pads - Result!

    On my way home from work yesterday the dash light came on indicating my brake pads needed replacing. So I called my local friendly vx dealer and booked the car in for today.
    I suddenly realised what I was doing! I didn't want the hassle of fitting them myself but to book the car into the dealers for this job is madness!

    I called the dealer and they quoted me £130 + VAT, I then called a couple of local garages and stumbled across a garage run by EBC, apparently EBC are the only British manufactured pads and are distributed from my home town (Northampton)
    Took the car down to them this morning, new pads and sensor cable fitted for £55 +VAT o...and keeping it British, that's what I call a result!!!

    Never attend a dealer unless you car is falling into pieces
