I try to do as much work as possible, but some small things I would rather just send my vehicle to have done. One of which being brakes. I was talking to one mechanic who apparently specializes in RRCs, told me to completely to the job the "old school and right way" would be a 7 hour job that with a $1000 tab not including parts.
To me that sounds ludicrous as no other foreign luxury vehicle I've had cost that much. Given, I recently bought my RRC and don't know how well the previous owner took care of the brakes which makes it an unknown.
What needs to be done for a complete brake job? What is the responsible amount of time to do it? What are the costs for labor in the Los Angeles market?
