    I've been told that they're 'cheap as chips' from the stealers! Is this true!

    Thanks! I'm assuming that it's the price for one end?

    That's for a kit for either a complete front or back i.e. each kit has two discs and four pads in.

    Hi (1st post, I know, I'll stick something in the intro section soon)

    Dealers have advised my front discs have corrosion on the rear and need replacing, so they've quoted me £202 for a new set including fitting.

    Is the £65 quoted above for a dealership parts price, or from an independent parts factor?

    thanks

    £65 + VAT price is for Joe Bloggs to come in off the street and ask for the Vx disc/pad kit. If you can get a trade discount then it's £46 + VAT.

    Fitting wise, you can save yourself a lot of money and DIY if you're happy doing things like that. There's a How 2 on here as well.

    thanks, I'll have a look at the How 2, but I have somebody lined up to do the work and he should be able to get them at trade too.
