Does anyone have a suggestion for a place that can do the replacement of all four discs and pads on my 147? Chatz want R8500 which is ludicrous in my opinion.

You're right I haven't. Work has been crazy and I left it long enough for the worn pads to score one of the rear discs so it's urgent now. I'm hoping to get it into a workshop tomorrow as this is my primary car for work etc. Alfia Auto isn't far from home so I'm hoping they can do it at a reasonable price. If I'd had more time/planned better I could've bought the parts myself and done it.....oh well!! They can also put on the new belly pan I bought while it's up on the lift. The saggy old one scrapes on absolutely everything at the moment.

Thanks for the info gents. I've booked with Alfia Auto. I'll drop it off early tomorrow morning. I need somewhere that's reliable, close by and reasonably priced. They fitted the bill on accounts and Eric recommended them too. They're going to do discs and pads all round plus fit the new bell pan for R5200.

Thanks for the offer Dave, unfortunately PTA is a bit too far for me to travel with my business work schedule.

Alfia Auto did the work yesterday. Absolutely a fantastic bunch of chaps. Very enthusiastic and willing to help. They fitted new front discs, front and rear pads, a new rear wiper blade, refilled the washer fluid and installed the new belly pan I provided all for R4200.

Best of all they're literally 6km from home.:thumbup:
