This applied to both of you, if you don't want to DIY the job and will travel then your best option would be Iain Litchfield, just to the SW of Brum.

You will get a choice of either AP or Alcon Discs, pad choice would depend on what you use your car for, road only, track & road etc. I would also recommend swapping your brake fluid out at the same time, not that oem is bad (it is pretty decent).

Don't know what prices Iain charges for discs but for a full set of AP slotted expect to pay around £1200, based on your road use only and cost I would opt for the Ferodo DS2500 pads. I would estimate 2 to 3 hours max for all 4 replaced and Iain charged £55.00 + VAT per hour.

Chris thanks, Litchfields advertise the AP discs at £395+ vat, but not sure if that is per wheel or a pair?

No idea but Alcon do a replacement that comes with a bell which is worth factoring in. If you get Litchfields to fit the AP rotors then you will be charged labour for the mechanic to fanny about with all the little bolts that need undoing then doing up again etc etc. The Alcons come with the bell so they are a simple fit but cost wise are £50 more per side. If your minded to get Litchfields to do the swap then Alcons work out cheaper but if you dont mind getting a bit grubby the AP stuff is far cheaper.

AP rotors need to be fitted to the oem bells and its a bit of a faff which is where the labour charge kicks in.

I found some infor that Alcons are lighter than OEMs and APs are a bit heavier than OEMs...
When my OEMs will be done, I will try to get Alcons + Carbotech XP8 pads...

I just got a pair AP racing slotted front discs for about £600 from my local autofactors who were doing 10% off. Cosworth front and rear pads and fitting from Ian at Litchfields for about £400 so £1000 all up. Rear discs are fine.

Paul, did Litchfields fit the ap's even though you sourced them from Autofactors? Also, if i call Autofactors do i just ask for costs on AP discs for R35, will that suffice?
