had my 08 RRS s/c in the shop for service - they also replaced front / rear brake pads at a cost of 995.00 - does this sound right? the car has 30k miles on it -

No way! I would go to roverconnection.com to buy the parts and get them installed at a local garage...

$210 OEM LR RRS Supercharged front pads
$85 OEM LR RRS rear pads
$39 OEM LR RRS Supercharged front pad sensor
$16 OEM LR rear pad sensor

Probably another $100 on install at a local garage?

I would never pay that much for front and rear pads at the stealership~!

New pads at 30K miles is entirely conceivable, but $1000 for just pads is highway robbery. Most likely that quote also includes front discs, perhaps the rear ones too since dealers jus6t love to replace them as often as brake pads - even though they are often just fine and may just need to be turned over... More money for them. I'd tell them to forget about it and either bring the car to an indy shop for a second opinion and a more honest price (a reputable one using OEM parts though, not a Midas) or do the job yourself if you are so inclined.

hi
i went to the dealer also for my 2 year and 30,000 mile service on my 2008 range rover sport and they told me that i needed front and rear pads and wanted to charge me almost $1,000 for the job but i told them i had to think about it.....
then i went to the parts department at land rover and bought front pads for $140 and rear pads for $96.00 total with tax was $250.00 went to my local shop and paid $120 to install them= $370.00 for the whole job
and as long as you use land rover parts you will still have your warrenty... :dance: :dance: :dance: :clap: :clap: :clap:
