    Yours are smaller than mine and VX quoted £180ish IIRC. Although that was the £70 kit which would be the same price. Ring a few garages around your area for prices. I'd buy the £70 disk and pad kit then get someone else to do the fitting
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Try ATS i got disks and pads for mine in the summer for £100 fitted, you can seem to haggle quite a bit with them, i thought that price was pretty good

    What sort of miles would you reckon the discs needed replacing.

    I'm coming up to 36k on the original pads and when in for a 2yr service recently the VX dealer said the pads were only half worn, do you change the discs everytime the pads are changed?
