Not to sure about the price of labor or anything. But I bought brand new from potterman's a OEM rear rotors and Mintex brake pads for +/-$88. I will be doing the install myself which requires buying a special tool, or renting it from pep boys. The fronts are similarly priced maybe a little more and no special tool is needed that I know of. Just letting you know that if you are to buy the parts seperatley it would probably much cheaper. Also if you can do the labor, thats free too! $300 for rear and front brakes seems pricey. Buy the pads from pottermans and go to midas to have the rotors turned and the pads installed. That would probably be the cheapest way to go IMO. Potterman's is http://www.parts4vws.com.
