Re: Worn out brakes
The price for the pads is for a set (4 pads).
There isn't much difference between SuperDOT4 & DOD5.1 brake fluids.
The brake fluid should be replaced at least every 2-years, the cost will be about 0.5hr extra labour if done at the same time as the pads, plus 1L of brake fluid.
Have a very close look at the discs too, with modern asbestos-free pads the discs often wear out at the same time as the pads.
Vented front discs are 22mm new - 20mm fully worn.
Solid front discs are 15mm new - 14mm fully worn.
