    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 .

    So are the calipers the same as an S3 on the TQS ?? just different carriers to make room for the larger diameter discs ??

    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.
