That was a steal. Rear discs alone on my VS were 170.

I think you got a good deal. I did mine today, front and rear disc rotors, and rear pads.

Parts alone cost $AUD450. Roughly GBP215.

Funniest thing, I got stuck as I couldn't get the rear piston to go back in. Haynes manual has nothing for RX4's. So went and got the laptop, stuck it on the workbench and searched the Australian renault forums for the answer. essentially wanted to be sure I was heading the right way. Found my answer and away I went.

How times change........
