    Unless your compitent enough to bleed them then id pay to get them done, seems a good price.

    update!

    Got my ferodo pads the other day.

    looking on ebay for the black diamond discs and came across some stating for a seat leon.

    Would these be ok for my car, im guessing they are 312mm standard in a seat leon fr. they going at £135 rather than £180 .

    Kos ive got hopefully 70 years left and dont trust myself lol! hes only charging £40 anyway. And yes marky. callipers cost me £100 then i bought some audi tt discs, as long as there vag and 312mm therell be ok. i was thinking of going big brakes, but not planning on any serious speed untill like 3 years time, so i dont see a point in having brembos on a 180bhp car imo. plus funds dont allow is more the reason!.

    definately the s3 and tt, and the others must be the same, but when i was asking about mine, i was told s3/tt, should be a worthwhile upgrade. isnt too dear really.
