Was the MOT one of those special offer £30-35 ones?
I would rather go somewhere and pay the full amaount (£55 IIRC) as there is less incentive for the garage to find things wrong to make up the cost of the cheap MOT.
If that was my car they had done it to, I would have given them the MOT back asked for the parts to be removed and asked for a refund.
Discs are less than £10 each at euro car parts, and pads are about £20 for a set. Handbrake cables are cheap enough too (providing the really did need doing)
Fitting will take about an hour, maybe less if you know what you are doing.
You will never be cool driving a Vauxhall.
