    If he had it done at a dealership, then that sounds about right. They charge premium prices for parts, then a bunch for labor, then lots of little stuff gets tacked on too. Things like $5 for 3 ounces of brake fluid, $4 for "supplies", a $3 shop fee, etc. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif I'm sure glad that I know how to fix my own stuff! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Is this "buddy" really you!!! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    Really, I replaced my calipers and pads a while back with what's called "loaded calipers." And it was about $100 before getting the core charge back (I think like $15 per caliper).

    Re: brake clalipers...

    are you sure they just REPLACED the calipers, or did they replace other things, like rotors, wheel bearings, but god damn that is why i like to do things on my own, but damn!
    btw; are "Loaded" calipers from autozone any good?
