    Searched forums and didn't find any recommendations for new rotors and brake pads. I've got a 2013 Model S (staggered 21" wheels) with 120k miles and need to replace all four rotors and pads. I just received an estimate from the SC and the total is $1,718.00 ($1290.00 for parts and $321 for labor).

    I learned that a service bulletin was issued for new rotors a few years ago so the below info probably reflects that. This is what the estimate included:

    ---------------

    Front Rotors Part #: 6006-420-00-A $240.00 each
    Rear Rotors Part #: 6006-431-00-C $165.00 each

    Front Pads Service Kit (Brembo??) Part #: HP1000-T (1055066-00-B) $285.00
    Rear Pads SVC Kit Part #: 1068331-00-A $195.00

    ---------------

    I'm sure I can save $$ by purchasing other rotors and pads but would like recommendations from everyone. Not looking to get drilled or slotted rotors. I'm also planning to do the job myself with an expert mechanic. Thanks!

    Here is a thread about my experience replacing rotors and pads:

    Bosch brake + rotor replacement

    I am happy with the performance, even if I technically bought incompatible pads. Total for both rotors and a set of pads was around $200. The rotors still look new (granted it has only been 6 months) and the brakes still stop well with no vibration. The job is pretty straightforward as brake jobs go, but I struggled more than I thought I would when getting the old pads out of the caliper. Probably should have applied more beer.
