I just bought genuine rear discs and pads for the mondeo, £100 all in! where they get £277 for front discs and pads from, who knows. I think the genuine discs and pads for the front of mine are about £110, probably cheaper for yours so thats £170/£180 for fitting? :(

hope you told them to ram it

2 years ago on my Mondeo, I had my front discs and pads + timing belt and pulleys replaced by my local garage = £338. I don’t have the breakdown now of the costs but I guess £200 for the timing belt and the rest for the brakes.

thanks guys i ordered these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Focus-1-6-Ti-VCT-Mk2-05-08-Mintex-Front-Brake-Pads-Discs-MDK0217-/110825980121?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item19cdbe40d9

and yes stef i told them to ram it. the guy actually said if i wasnt happy with the price i could speak to the manager i did and the wonder of smartphones came through, i simply went to my ebay where i had bookmarked the above and showed him the response wa we cant do the parts at that price so i told him thats strange that its £77 each per disk when i know fords oem disks are around £60 per pair not much said after that surprisingly
