Why not do it your self and save lots of money, it is cheap and easy to do.
Atlantic British has a sale going on a full brake kit, rotors and pads.
As for dealer prices, $800 to $1000.

Just as Mike said, $800 to $1,000.

Do it yourself for $300 or $400 (depending on what you use).
The job can be done in just over an hour if your good, a few hours if you take your time. Not a bad job, and not complicated at all.

If all you need is pads, it is a three minute job per wheel after you get the wheel off.

I just replaced all 4 corners- rotors and pads on my '01 Discovery. I had never done a brake job before and was surprised at how easy it was with only 4 bolts per corner. And dirty!! (the tricks are a phillips impact driver for the set screws, Brakleen spray, WD40 and leverage for the caliper bolts, the correct 12 pt sockets, and great advice on compressing the pistons) I spent $323 including shipping for Magnum Rotors, Akebono front pads and Mintek rear pads. All were purchased through eBay and delivered in 4 days. The job took about 3 hours and would have been less but for several frozen bolts (WD40, patience, leverage). No blood!
The local estimates were $900-$1200! BRAKES PLUS had a $27 "EUROPEAN vehicle labor charge" %#&^*#$$?
After about 30 miles of in-town driving, everything is great! Knock on wood...

How satisfied are you with pads and rotors from R1? Getting ready to replace all four wheels.

Never heard of it.
Try Atlantic British if you want to get good brakes/prices.

Hey guys, Im soon to be needing a brake job, I've got the facilities to do the job myself. It looks to be quite simple and straight-forward. but anyway, what brand of brakes and rotors are most recommended? I will be replacing both, I dont think my rotors are in a condition to be turned and I'd rather have a fresh set of rotors since Im not 100% aware of the history of my truck.

I've seen the R1 concepts kits on ebay, they seem to have good reviews from the people that have bought them, and they have a pretty decent price. I've also seen the Ferodo brake rebuild kit on atlanticbritish. What exactly is the difference between the 'brake rebuild kit' and the rotors and pads? Other than the couple hundred $$ or so...I would like to get everything I need without getting halfway into the job and realizing I dont have a clip or a retainer that I need. I've not checked any local parts stores yet for the brakes and rotors, are these parts attainable at local parts stores? Or would I be better off ordering them?

Thanks for any help and I apologize for any thread hijacking...

Get your brake stuff from Will Tillery, #1 Community For Land Rover Owners - The Rover Guy He has great prices and is helpful when answering questions!
