    I paid my local back street tyre place £20 to do my last set. Well worth the money IMO
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    You will need the tool, you need to wind the piston in. My mechanic had both sides done in 15 mins in total, very simple.

    I paid 155 squid at VX to get new pads and discs all round (including 314mm fronts) but fitted them all myself - bargain if you ask me...

    i have checked the website and they have 2 on there, one for £20.99 and one for £29.99, although the most expensive has 3 sizes of pins to push the piston back in.
    cheers.
