Default rear brakes cost

I have just been charged £100.00 labour by my local Garage in rural Cambridgeshire to fit rear pads and discs to my 1.8 Rover 75 does this seem about right?........thanks Stuart

That seems excessive, unless the calipers were seized, it should only take about 1/2 hour a side tops. So either they were really slow,or they charge mega bucks for their hourly labour rate. Was vat included in that ? Have you an itemised invoice?

Just out of interest what make was fitted, as prices for parts vary tremendously, from very very cheap, to damn expensive!!(Depending upon make and country of origin)??

£100 does seem very high. How long did it take them and did they do anything else?

My local garage just fitted my pads and discs front and back for £110 inc VAT.

I had to search around as prices varied from £110 to 200.
