for my 2004 Acura tsx, Bought aftermarket good grade, anti rusting brake rotors for all 4 rotors, and 4 aftermarket cermaic brake pads. $175 for rotors and brake pads, and $150 for rear rotor and pads, $50 labor paid to my mechanic for replacements.

Option 4: pads and rotors for four wheels, 200, do it yourself. Easy job.
I dont think everyone is DIY
I could not open one caliper guide pin bolt when I was doing the brake service. Super jammed and it was rotating with the pin...

I think if things are rusty it will be difficult to remove the caliper bracket bolts ....and they need torqueing to specs...
Space there is too small to work with.

h.
That was because only one wrench was used. You supposed to use 11mm socket at front and 17mm open wrench at the back.

$50 for labour is one hell of a deal. What's their hourly rate?

Most shops quote 2-3 hours to do a complete front and rear brake job with servicing, but generally bang it out in about an hour or so.

Are you sure you need to replace all 4 rotors?

OP, there seems to be a lot of good feedback on iGarage. I'm not in the GTA, but why don't you go there if you don't feel comfortable replacing the brakes?

any performance issues? that's a pretty good deal. a few shops I talked to quoted like 500 for the full job with aftermarket parts.

Last question...is it cheaper to buy the OEM Acura brake pads + rotors myself? Any place in Toronto where I can buy them?

I went to 360 Auto in Markham to change my front pads and rotors ... ordered Hawks Performance Pads 5.0 and aftermarket rotors. Paid $380.
