    rolleyes Kwik Fit

    After almost a week of having very squealy grindy brakes i took the car into Kwik Fit for a 'free brake check'. Left it there for a few hours and got a phone call saying that all 4 corners needed new discs and pads, and that my driver side spring had snapped (that's where the noise is coming from)

    Anyway, i went up to collect the car and see how much it would be to get everything done and was quoted £530....... I told them i would have a think and get back to them as the 2 front springs would cost £240 to replace. Got back to work and ended up ordering a full set of Eibachs for £155

    I took the wheel off and had a good look at the spring which has supposedly snapped to find it in one piece.

    After getting the wheel back on i bumped into a guy i know who does everything you could do to a car so he said he would have a look himself. All i need to do is get the front discs and pads replaced!!!!!!!!

    So he's going to do that tomorrow night and also fit my new springs. So the moral of the story is - Kwik Fit talk b*llocks

    The only thing they are Kwik at is giving silly price's. They have to make some money back on the " free check's "

    i'd complain to the manager, quoting for work that doesn't need doing is completely out of order.

    thats the trouble with fast fitt centres tam, in for a penny in for a pound
    the fitters work on a bouns sceem ans they would get about £1.50 per brake item and about 5% for the springs

    they are all robbing so and so's glad your getting it sorted m8 and a lot cheaper

    I can't believe i ordered lowering springs lol

    I was thinking about it but was told 'the cars low enough'

    Was just a 'spur of the moment' panic but at least the car will look even better
