    Probably around $600 parts labour tax all in
    Rotors $50each plus tax. $113.00
    Drums $44each plus tax $99.50
    Pads $25-50 a set plus tax $62-$113.00
    Shoes $20-45 a set plus tax $50-98.00
    1-3 hours labour at $60-$120/hour
    Plus misc. lube/environment/supply’s used charge.


    Bring me parts and I’ll install cheap

    Wow! it is like 6% of the cost of the car! For a micra this is over priced!

    parts always cost more individually than as a package - without labour it's below 350 -> unless you beat the crap out of the brakes you may never need to replace the rear drums, the shoes can go 150-200K. I've passed 110K and my front rotors are still at 21.2mm, with over half of the front pads left.

    Brakes being one of the really simple things to work on, if you do need to do work to them, doing it yourself can save you ~50%...

    $600 for brakes all the way around is not a bad deal at all IMO. I've heard quotes as high as that just for fronts or backs on some cars.
