Treg went for 30,000km service today and VW advised me that I have to replace front and read brake pads plus front rotors at cost of $1890.

After some calls around independent mechanics I got quoted $1300 for the job(ATE pads and discs)

Do you think its fair price? And do you have any feedback on ATE system? I've never heard about them.

Cheers

Unless the brake pad wear sensors have gone off you are wasting money changing out the brakes. Sounds like someone wants to make some money off of you.

I had exact same thing happen at 30,000 km as well. Similar message from dealer service. I kept driving until the light came up on the dash (took around 3 months) and then did the fronts only. Been waiting for the light to come on again for the rears and its been nearly 10,000 K's.
