    A6 pads and discs all round, how much?

    My mate has just bought an 02 plate A6 2.5 tdi and found out it needs pads and discs.

    How much roughly is it going to cost?

    I paid 130 for S6 front discs and pads, and standard rear setup from VeeWAutoparts in bristol.

    Bosch parts aswell!

    Though my S6 front setup isn't fitted yet so i had to buy a std setup aswell for 70 for the front.

    It will largely depend on

    a) whether you plan to do the work yourself
    b) whether you are happy with cheap pads/discs or more expensive 'performance ones', and
    c) If not doing it yourself whether you plan to use an Independent garage or Audi, as the larger chunk of the cost could end up being the labour.

    You can buy pads and discs direct for under 100 for the rear and similar for the front. Many independent garages i know will also make money on parts, so you could end up paying (as a rough guide) about 200 - 250 for the parts and a further 150ish labour. More if you use Audi.

    I did my rear pads and discs myself last month for 150, but bought premium discs and pads a) because they last longer and b) because i wanted good stopping performance.
