I think I paid about 450 for new discs and pads all round form the Kings Lynn dealership about 6 moths ago. I probably am paying through the nose a bit, but get first class service and an (essential for me) courtesy car.

Whilst there are cheaper deals about, I had problems with calipers seizing on my old T4 after a tyre & brake centre changed the discs - I suspect they were a bit heavy handed, and I've heard that T4 calipers are known to seize more than others.

For the parts alone you are looking at about 130 upwards depending on whether they use gen parts or not so about 40 quid labour ? dont sound tooooo bad ?

I always phone a few different places always good to shop about but cheapest isnt always the best. i know if you use kwikfit discs and pads are gauranteed for the lifetime you have the car don't know if this would apply to a van though.
