Mwequine Your own garage In all seriousness though, unless you really don't want to or don't have the time it is a very easy job. This way you know the quality of work and parts. The only place I'd really trust is a dealer which I wouldn't want to spend the $$$ on or a local shop that would allow me to personally jack it since I don't really want anyone putting it on a lift other than myself. I'm super paranoid though.

Kazi Pad and rotor change on an Elige is very simple. You can get all the tools you need for the same price (or possibly less) as a shop will charge you for one visit. Here is a video showing how quick it really is:


I wouldn't recommend using a discount shop unless they have worked on a Lotus before, as they may mess up the car when they put it on a lift. If you do want to take it in, Park Place would know what they are doing, as would Cantrell Motorsports in Bellevue.

Where to get brakes done ?

Total newb question here, can you get aftermarket brakes done
At any local brake place or should be somewhere like park place ?

Thinking about new rotors and pads instead of dealing with
Rusty pad rotor issue cosmetically. Grinding anyway

Suggestions for shop and expected cost?
Thank you !
