I didnt think that was too horrific...was expecting over £200. Obviously id of rather not had to pay £173. Without the VAT it would of been £144.95. If id of bought the discs myself (off eurocarparts.com) id of got the wrong ones as apparently my model focus wasnt fitted with the usual discs which appear when you type your reg in on the website.
Also i guess the discs/pads on a 1.8 or 1.6 would be slightly cheaper?
Worryingly though they noticed that my fuel pump was a little noisy.....which is usually due to a clogged fuel filter but i had that changed recently. So they think my fuel pump could be on its last legs. Said should be fine for now but to keep an eye on it :-( The car has done 125k so its done well as that will be the original fuel pump and was the original discs too
I've just had this exact same issue. About 4 months ago i got my front tryes replaced and the guy that changed them said i needed new discs too. So i booked the car in at my local garage to have the discs replaced but they said the discs were fine and didnt need doing
For the last 3 or 4 days ive noticed a scraping/grinding noise when i apply the breaks. So have booked car in again this wednesday do get either the pads and discs changed or possibily just the pads. Will let ya know how much it costs
