How much to replace brake pads and disc rotors?
Took my N15 SSS to the mechanic and it needs to replace the back brake pads and disc rotors was quoted at $480 plus labor brake fluid etc... just wanted to check i'm not getting ripped off?
If in doubt, boost it out
At guess I'd say up to:
$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).
Look around bud. These were posted up on Pulsar Group of Sa for around $230 roughly, off ebay. And they're for a GtiR which suits my conversion i have. To buy just the front rotors alone in Adelaide is around $400 for mine standard
Ebay be least expensive. Or a wreckers but id buy new bud 👌
What is the common rotor/pad combo for a daily driver N15 SSS?
RDA / DBA rotors and Bendix GCT pads.
