Mine are shot to **** :lol:

What is the going rate from a specialist to supply and fit them approx?

Also is it worth getting the break fluid changed in the process...if so how much is that going to be too?

Cheers,

I recently bought discs and pads from Buy Parts By. The parts supplied were not Mintex but I was assured they were as good as. Cost was £61 inclusive. I paid about the same to get them fitted at my local indie.

If you're after generic discs and pads, just call your local garages and get a fitted quote. They get preferential prices from parts suppliers and it ac their daily bread and butter work. I'd guess about £140 all in fitted should be a reasonable price, you'll get the basic parts, but if you aren't looking to upgrade to performance pads, no point getting a brand name. They're all much of a muchness.

Changing the discs and pads is a relatively straight forward job but replacing the brake fluid is a little more difficult.

There is nothing 'Alfa specific' about either job.
