i took my astra to Kwikfit to get a quick oil change and new filter before a long drive, last minute thing.
when it was up in the air, the mechanics said that'd i'd need a new back box soon as the second skin(?) has gone rusty and may get a big ol' hole soon.
to go along with this good news they also said i need new brake discs/rotors. they do look tired i suppose!
anyway, they quoted me something in the region of £YIKES for the lot.
now i;m a very poor student and the quote they gave me sounded like it was wayyyy OTT, but i'm no mechanic so i just don't know.
so from experience: how much should a new back box, and new brake discs and pads all round (drums on rear....can i upgrade these to discs? that'd be awesome!) cost+ fitting and where should i go?
incase the info is required:
the car is a 2001 Y reg Vauxhall Astra Envoy, 1.6 8v with 4 stud wheels.
thanks in advance.
