    Thumbs up Approx how much for new discs/ pads??

    just noticed a rather worrying rubbing/grinding noise when reversing out my drive,had a good run around this morning and i noticed the noise is coming from the rear and(more noticable when pulling up at junctions etc) only occurs when braking so i had a look at the rear discs and their pretty worn although the pads have stacks of pad left on them,
    i've only had the car a month so i'm just getting used to it's little quirks,
    i was wondering how much a dealer or good mechanic would charge to supply and fit a pair of vented discs and pads for a 2005 3.2 v6 signum?,

    i've had a look around and i can get the mintex kit for about £75.00,would it be something i should attempt myself?,(the most i've attempted was regular servicing on my old vec b),or should i just save my knuckles and a lot of swearing and just let a garage sort it out?,
    thanks in advance for any help and advice

    hi m8
    vx discs and pads are around £75
    vx wanted to charge me about £140
    you will need a brake rewind tool £28ish
    and torx bits not sure on sizes.
    torque wrench.
    thread lock.
    when i did mine it cost me a bit cheaper then the dealers doing it but a least i got the tools for doing it again.
