I'm having the rears done on the 145 at the weekend by a garage will report back. However I have found that some garages are funny about you buying the parts. Like you've walked into a restaurant with your own steak to cook. Now I would understand in a restaurant but the expertise I am paying for at a garage are mechanical skills. Rear standard Brembo's and pads for my car about 45 quid. I don't mind paying more if they take the time to order them etc, but if it's a lot more, I would feel aggrieved. Alex Jupe did some suspension work on my car and I had no issue with the parts prices he charged me, so I guess he was charging fairly.I would like to know any garage owners on here and their opinion, I'm all for keeping the world going round with cash, but the more spare cash I have the more times I can visit and pay them for more work.
