I did watch a few online videos and it seems fairly simple, the only thing im not sure of is the brake fluid bleeding part, if im only replacing the rotors and pads do i need to bleed? Im not touching the calipers.

Once again sorry for all the questions.
Stay away from the dealer! You have a lot of choices for vendors. If you want to avoid shipping costs, there's autopartsway. In the US there's BMAautoparts, FCPeuro, ECS tuning, etc..

If don't feel confident bleeding, then just swap the rotors and pads yourself first then take it to an independent shop for the fluid change (they can probably bleed you clutch too since it operates under the same hydraulic system.)

I guess it all depends on how much you are prepared to spend.
The brands I listed above perform identical to OE standards.
