Default What is a fair price for brake installation and rotors

I purchased some new EBC brakes and rotors to install around the car. I could install them myself but have very little time to do it. What is a fair price to install brakes and rotors? I'm thinking about having them done at Nissan.

Well if you do them at Nissan, they're most likely going to have an hourly rate at about $80-90 per hour...

I honestly think that $40-50 per corner is a fair ....

$100-150 would be my guess since you're providing the materials. I wouldn't take it to a dealership, you'll pay a premium there. Find a decent independent shop (ie. scout out for other repairs down the road) or worse case a chain.

I'd be careful taking it to a mom and pop garage as they may screw something up. Prioritize your day, I'm sure you can squeeze an hour out of your day to do it yourself.

Word. I did my front and rear bbk in a day, the rotors and pads take less than an hour to get off.

yeah unless you have a hook up somewhere (which is common in Jersey, especially the multi-cultural city areas), no price is fair if you know you can do it yourself. I cringe everytime I hear about someone paying a shop or dealer for it.
