LOL

Pads and rotors, according to the cost on germanparts.ca should be around 600-700 bucks

Unless there's some fancy tools involved in taking the calipers apart, I would imagine it should be a straight forward brake job. I think the rears might need to be put into service mode because the handbrake is electronic, but if they don't then I imagine any decent independent mechanic wouldn't charge more then 3 hours labour at around 100 bucks an hour... so around the 1000 bucks mark total. Still not cheap but hey it's a cayenne...

Thanks... I'll pass along the info... I'm sure it'll be much appreciated!!!


Now... any Volvo recommendations? My friend's wife's car just developed a leak in the power steering lines... the dealer wants $2500 and says they'll need to just about take the engine apart... 6 hours... (aren't cars fun? I'm so glad that I can fix our TDIs with the help of suppliers like Roseland and Precision (as well as those Southerners from the other side of the border...)

Doesn't it bug you when a trusted shop picks up moves far away? Back in the 90's we had one within walking distance... then they moved 40 minutes away... then in the TDI era, I went to Brandon (DCB) for those things I didn't want to fix myself... and then he went to Orillia...

Cobourg- Port hope area recommendations?

recommend any tdi-owners who do their own tdi maintenance (and mods)
-in (or frequently by-passes) cobourg/port hope area
-mk5 competent and newer (most seem to stop at mk4)
-PM if some prefer to be anon.

Ive
-mk5 bentley service manual
-bluedriver app+odb2 plug. (think it sucks bad for my vw TBH)
-no other tools or access to roof/garage

Currently my understanding
-vw dealership in port hope has a knowledgeable parts manager Jason and very helpful service manager Dan. Cant comment yet on the tech(s).
-both Dayman Automotive and Port Hope Auto Service are/have VW Certified tech. cant comment on experience with mk5-up though.
-cobourg currently has 2 vw certif techs at OK Tire(formly Quick Service). John is really knowledgable and has had glowing reviews on google. Glen has put a new LuK DMF/flywheel in. Shifts noticably smoother and no clatter, since.

Anyone found a way to have replies forward to private email? could save lots of time; zero-turnaround time.
