No idea of cost of long brake pipe renewal. I did discs and pads on a Mokka for £60 - Mintex - decent stuff. Also did one of my son's fleet of cars for their nurseries - Chevrolet Orlando - similar cost from Brakes International.

Shame you aren't in North west - would have done them - freebie.

If you are doing the work, then yes, buy cheaper parts online - eurocarparts often have decent discount codes, and you can look up prices for the parts on there too.

If you are getting a garage to fit the parts, then get them to supply the parts too. Otherwise, if you get any problems with the parts then you're paying for the removal and refitting again, and you, the supplier and fitter are in a constant argument about the parts or the fitting being faulty, you trying to claim off someone for the additional labour costs, etc.

Depends a lot on where you go , main dealer or local one man band , at a guess with pattern parts it would be under £150 , check price of brake pipe they can be made up at the garage if it’s over the top
