Ok it looks like my rear rotor can't be machined any further. Does anyone know if the swift rotors or standard ignis front rotors are the same? Looking for best value replacement as finding OEM parts for the sport is likely to be painful.

Ok I've been quoted $750 to replace front and rear rotors and brake pads including labor. That seems reasonable to me?

Including labour that sounds like a decent deal to me for most cars. Are you able todo the work yourself? That would keep the costs down too

I broke my arm over christmas, so that's definitely a no :lol:

I thought it was a reasonable deal, just worth double checking. I'm pretty sure the previous mechanic fitted cheap pads which are making the fronts squeal intermittently but the rotors definitely need replacing anyway so I'll the lot done. Guess I'm keeping the car too, couldn't find anything I loved in my price range to replace it...

Go for a quality pad while you are at it. If it's just for daily use a Bendix Ultimate wold be what I'd use, great breaking for every day use, excellent life and not too harsh on the rotors in my experience.

Hope the arm is coming along alright and you can enjoy the Iggy again. I'd love one for a daily but finding one for sale in Tassie isn't easy.
