Angry Do these brakes look done?

So I've had a fun few days. I bought an 03 Clio off a trader about 5 weeks ago. I'm going to be driving it from Aberdeen to Belfast soon enough so thought I'd get service done.

Took it to Halfords who came back and said front brakes are 18mm and the limit is 17.5mm and one of the tyres is from 2001! Took it to Kwik fit to get them to look too. They said the same. I needed the car sorted asap so just let Kwik fit replace the brakes as I needed the car on the road again.

However Kwik fit also said there's teeth missing off the Abs ring so could be looking at new Abs rings or driveshafts. I took the car back to the trader who's saying the brakes were absolutely fine!

All a bit of a nightmare tbh. Any ideas what I should do or advice?
