Dealer cost for complete brake job on T3 ?

For those of you that have replaced brakes on '11 + at dealers, how much have you paid? And...Nooby don't tell me to use the search function, because I just spent half an hour trying to answer this question with insufficient results. Thank you in advance !

My pads only was $944, with tax. If I had done the rotors and pads, it would have been about $1700, with tax.

They are also the best source for price gouging. I'm just doing my homework before I drop a good chunk of change on my rig.

Dude, that is outrageous.

EDIT - Just looked up cost for OEM front and rear brakes with all hardware. Total was just under $350 shipped. They charged around $600 for labor. That's insane.

Your shopping world wide (international forum) for some local price quotes. Or do you want to know how much they cost at Ft McConnell outpost?

Unless of course your going to drive it, to the best prices?

You call the dealer for the parts or shop online.

Then you get the book time on whatever you want done.

Then you call around to see how much the shop cost per hour (see above).

Otherwise, it's 235 Schmeckle including parts.

Pads were $420 at dealer. I had no problem using my dealer. Great service dept., and I am glad to have them as my dealer of choice. Their pricing is fair relative to other dealers. Since my TDI is likely to bought out, I will keep it for a good chunk of 2017, otherwise I would have done the rotors, too -- at the dealer -- since my TDI is awesome. Oh well.

On my 2014 Touareg, I have only had front rotors and pads done (rears were fine) - work done at the dealer. I paid $867.85. Rotors were $132 each, pads $180, senders $95, and $330 in labor....

If you don't DIY, then this is one of the simpler jobs on a Touareg that can be done by any competent workshop using VW parts at a labour /labor rate that's probably a lot lower than a VW dealer.

The one thing you need to watch out for on T3s and T4s is that the workshop knows how to deal with the electrically operated parking brake.

Excellent Wikipedia info on all models:

I did my 4 discs, pads and sensors and did not have to worry about setting the electric parking brake. Never engaged them and all was well when I replaced the pads. Rear callipers were also a dream to remove as the mounting bolts are tangential to the drive line axis.
I used Brembo discs which were very good, but the only down side is the TRW pads. They are just too soft. Initial bight is good but feels a bit mushy on the pedal, even after bleeding brakes for a long time. I would not recommend TRW pads at all. Even my wife commented that the pedal feels slightly mushy, Stick to Zimmerman, Brembo or even OEM!
