    At guess I'd say up to:
    $70 pads
    $120 discs
    $30 for fluid.

    Your quote might be a little high, even with a couple of hours labour.

    Looks like someone is selling RDA discs and pads for $163 posted on eBay. Pretty easy job to do - don't think there's anything funky with the n15 rear compared with the n14 (which is what I'm familiar with).

    Depends if they're using TRW discs and friction master 2000 pads or DBA discs and EBC pads, does seem a bit steep though.

    N14/15 is the same same. The hardest part is often either getting the old discs off (because they get rusted on) or screwing the piston back into the caliper is hard without the factory tool (but doable).
