i think its 100 for the discs all round or 140 for the discs and pads all round. thats uprated pads though

Get the best you can afford Stef, fronts first if the rears are still serviceable and money is tight.
Take a look at Euro Car Parts winter brochure, page 61 or their website, ...

Political correctness defined:
Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end
