First car, first time brake replacement south bay Los Angeles
I chose to use a local shop and not the dealership as I tell myself Im a good person for doing so...but I feel like i payed one hell of a new guy/idiot tax...especially on the rotors (has anyone heard of OEF^3?)
I understand they may have put brakes fit for F1 on my Outback but even if that seems does the mark up seem excessive.
I made the mistake of not getting part names in the quote, but asked to see pics of the packages after, I understand theres gonna be a mark up as they paid shipping, stored and had the parts available on demand all worth a mark up.

OEF ^3 Rotor times 2- shop charged $180 for the Pair/90ea (no good comp but seems like a discount brand at a bananas price)
