Brake pads for 2003 Toyota Corolla

These needs replacing for a WOF. Can anyone give me a ball park figure on cost to get this done? Best place to get it done? Many thanks.

Flier- Your local mechanic wouldn't have an issue installing pads. Or if he does he shouldn't be a mechanic.
A straight out. Lube em up and toss em in job should be about $100
disk skim and a general lookover whilst they are in bits would add roughly another $100

DON'T go to Pitstop/Midas or the like.
If you do you will end up paying well over the actual price and end up with a lot of new stuff you didn't really need.

Not quite the right advice. Pitstop is a franchise, they range from providing great value/service through to being daylight robbers.
It's unfair to tar them all with the same brush.

How you can tell the difference?

Simple due diligence as you would do with any company offering a service. Ask your friends, Google, Facebook or even approach the company for a reference. In my experience most companies with a well established satisfied client base have a few customers who are more than happy to supply a referral.

Look for a garage that does a lot of taxis ! They will not be there if they charge like a wounded bull

Fair point. They would want the cheapest price and the longest terms as well.

LOL; just remember the old adage about fast, good and cheap!
