I know some here will say not ture, that's fine, just going by what I have seen day in and out.
Well i just want the brakes to be replaced with somthing of the same quality as the factory brakes it came with, while i do agree that some shops use cheaper brakes - there are a few that will do a good job with quality equipment (based on what i read). I guess it all depends on how much you are prepared to spend.

What brands do you use at your shop? Also would you be able to provide me with a price for a complete brake job?
