Alfa gt 1.8 Brake prices


Just had a full service on my GT and i have been quoted 370 for replacement front and rear brakes. Pads and shoes to be supplied and fitted. Just wondering if this is an ok price?

Sounds a bit pricey to me but I've always replaced my brakes myself, its definitely DIY'able, there's good guides available if you're unsure, I think the parts online come to roughly 100 tops.
That will then work out around 70 a corner in labour.
I'm no mechanic so hopefully someone in the know will be along soon to confirm or correct me

Did mine last weekend,grooved & dimpled discs with protective coating supplied with pads all round from Mtec, took a day including cleaning up the calipers & sliders, greased with ceratec & cost 187. Difference is amazing. I was surprised at how bad the old discs were & the pads just fell apart when I removed them. I had checked them out on the local garage brake tester just before I did them & they would still have passed an MOT!!!

You could buy the brakes yourself and just pay for fitting.
