    Just been quoted $778 for replacement of front disks and pads. OEM.
    After market $651.
    Any thoughts on prices?

    Try ASV (aka Eurocar parts). They stock Brembo pads and rotors. Should come in around half the price of the originals and to be honest the brembos feel better than the originals.

    Depends on which size front rotor? What motor is in your C5?

    If you are doing the job yourself you can shop around for the best parts price. Because they are actually Peugeot parts anyway they should not be too difficult to source. You just have to be sure you get the same diameter rotors, because there are a few different sizes depending on which engine size and model you have. The calipers should be the same regardless, so the pads should be the same. You should just need the rotors and pads.
    If someone else is doing the work it's going to really cost you.

    Did my C5's fronts a few weeks ago. One of the easiest jobs in a long time. Got the parts from EAI.

    Thanks all. The parts are relatively cheap. Around $260.00. So $400 to $500 for labour. Are any special tools needed?

    Maybe torx sockets for the calliper bolts, but they're probably an 18mm bolt. A torx screw set for the disc retaining screws is likely.

    A torque wrench for the calliper bolts upon refitting.

    Special? No... Just about an hour maybe tops for someone who has a clue.

    Hi tassie,
    The pistons need to be screwed in while pushing them. A special tool is noted but I managed mine with a bit of fiddling. The pistons do turn in opposite direction on the two sides.

    X7 C5 models are like P407s with a shock absorber difference. Hand brake is at the rear, again similar to 407 and 508. There are Youtubes.

    Is there any particular brand preference? I will need to replace the front rotors and pads on a 508 with 39,000km shortly. I see Brembo mentioned. What brand did you end up choosing UFO?
    Do they generate less dust than OEM?

    Derek,

    Not sure what brand I got but I bought them via Martin Callendar at EAI. They are still wearing very well and seem to have manageable dust levels. They certainly don't blacken the wheels quickly - and I'm not the world's most obsessive car washer.

    The last time I was at EAI, they were selling Italian LPR discs and Valeo pads.
