Yeah I noticed, until the 15th I think. Might need to wait until next month to start getting bits.

BTW the front rotors I want are about $290 a pair at Sparesbox, some exact ones at SCA are $260.

So with 20% off Sparesbox is about $230.

But right now all up with pads I'm still looking at $600.

I will get them but right now its not urgent and I'll get them in stages, maybe front rotors, then rear then all the pads.

I've got some Borg and Beck Pads, Rotors, and Handbrake Shoes coming out of the UK with our Sea Freight order so they'll be here next year approximately the time I'll need to replace them =D They're nothing fancy, simply OE replacement.

Staff rates so the price is more than okay ;)

Trade price on these parts would be $569.86 including Grab Snatch and Take.

Didn't really think about the handbrake shoes, are they worth changing if you do the rear rotors?

I figured I'd do mine while I was at it, and the car having done a little over 270k I'd do them anyway. in reality they're probably a part that doesn't really need to be changed unless you do a lot of handbrake slides or hand brake slow downs on tail gaters....
