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...)
