Pads alone is 130?? That's like an arm and leg......
I don't know where you get your parts from, but a quote for my car gives me 120 for the pads from rockauto after tax and shipping. That's the daily driver line.

If you can do all (DIY), why bother with iGarage? Yes, $600 is expensive unless your car is highend.
Indeed, i forgot to post in this thread i got my brakes done by Ivan recently, pads and rotors for about half the $600. But i drive an economy car.

iGarage gets another +2 from me.

Strictly from his prices, his labour quotes are descent, even if you bring your own parts he still charges the same labour. Brakes, and general maintenance is easy to do yourself, but if you can't, always good to get at least a quotation from him.

Front and rear stoptech 309 pads only are 161 cad shipped and taxed on rock auto. That's for a e90 335 or e84 x1 35i. How u get 130 for one axle really question me. They have cheaper centric 105/104/106....

Max brakes black coated cross drilled rotors and ceramic pads were 124$ on amazon. All 4. They perform amazing on my 07 accord. I couldn't be more happier. 600-150 (124+tax) is 450. I'm not being an ******* here and I'm not saying he does a bad job or anything like that but 450 for labor is a bit steep.

124 for pads and rotors? that's a bit too cheap to me, not sure how the long term quality will be.

I was at iGarage on Friday having some routine service done on my wife's Acura. The dealer wanted ~$215 and said it would take 90 minutes. Ivan charged me $120 and had the entire job done in about 30 minutes. So another thumbs up for Ivan and iGarage.

As mentioned previously, he no longer works on week-ends, but I can't fault him for wanting to spend more time with his family. I'd do the same.

It was just an example. Other after market parts are similarly priced, probably 10-20 bucks difference.
