Basically,

Got new brembo calipers with discs and pads. New brake lines too.

Unfortunately my girlfriends dad is insistant on me getting a garage to do it rather than myself. This is a pain as i have been quoted around 100.

surely thats abit high for a front caliper change, new brake lines all round and a brake fluid renewal?

thoughts?

done,

cost me a bit in the end as the back lines had seized on and the discs had a chip in them and needed to be taken out.
