    Pretty sure they are the right size matey!!

    It should take no longer than 3 hrs for VX to change the dics and pads, around 45mins a wheel. It took me 3.5 hrs to do all four at my mates garage and it was the first time I had ever replaced discs!!

    It's really not that hard a job.

    The fronts are deffo the right ones. The rears however are the wrong ones I think. I'm sure they should be none vented? Think only the turbo petrol and the V6's came with rear vented. HTH

    IIRC, those on E-Bay aren't much cheaper (when you add in postage costs) than buying genuine VX pads & disc kit from your VX dealer. If you're getting VX to fit the Mintex ones and there's a subsequent parts issue, they may not play ball.

    VX times are 1 hour to do the front and rear pads, 0.4 hours to remove & replace rear discs and 0.3 hours to remove & replace front discs.

    Total labour therefore about 1.7 ish hours (=1 hour and 42 minutes).

    Average labour rates I guess are about £80 per hour + Vat, so you'll be looking at about £156 to get VX to fit them.

    thats with the brake sensor cost.... "just in case"

    as mine doesnt have one it would have been cheaper.... i guess not much.
