First time attaching images!!
Just did the front brakes. The rotors and pads were on there for 7 years and 65,000 miles... Rotors didn't want to come off, had to use a lot of penetrating fluid and a hammer.

xc60 new brakes.jpg So pretty

New brakes.jpg I used Genius rotors and Vortex pads. (Not made in China)
All in for the parts = $422 CAD (about $320 USD) from M&M Auto Parts, Mississauga, Ontario
The rears will be done on Tuesday.
Have you guys seen rotors this bad? The interesting thing is, the brakes were still smooth and vibration free.

Nice work. I use fcpeuro.com for parts. Great prices even with the exchange rate and shipping to Canada.

For the rear pads and rotors I use a big c clamp to depress the parking brake to open it up.
