I recently was quoted these prices at a local shop for repairs/replacements. I wanted to know if these price quotes are decent
1991 Acura Legend L Coupe 130K miles

Front brake pads and rotors $490
Rear brake pads and rotors $470
Cam Angle Sensor and all drive belts $530
Antenna Mast and Motor $330
Hood Struts $250
All prices include labor and parts.
Thanks

You can get a new antenna mast and install it yourself pretty easy, and it should only be like $80. Unless your motor is what is broken too, that would cost you a little bit more money.

With the rotors, I would say that it would be a better idea to just get some Brembo Rotors (cross drilled/slotted if you want) and some nice aftermarket brakepads to go with them. It would end up being cheaper as well. If you don't feel comfortable installing that stuff yourself then I would say to take it to a mechanic, and have them install. Would still end up being cheaper in the end. If at all possible don't take anything to Acura. (their prices are massively inflated)

I'm not sure about the other things, sorry dude.

as usual, Acura is gouging you....run, do not walk, away from these guys. Try to find a Honda/Acura certified tech in a private garage....you will save 30% or more and get as good a job.

Boy, those guys are really trying to rape you! Find a good local indie Acura technician & get your parts from Jason @ Acura of Augusta. You'll be glad you did. Good luck---

Contact Acura of Augusta 1-800-736-6818. The OEM pad sets at discount are around $35 a set. The antenna mast approx. $60. A new OEM antenna assy used to retail for approx. $263. OEM front rotors (retail): $116 ea. Rear rotors: $119 each. OEM hood struts at discount are approx.$140 a set (retail at $93 each). All of the above you can perform yourself. You would need to order a couple of disk - hub screws just in case you ruin one during disassembly. Unless your Crank/Cyl Sensor has failed, wait until you require the next timing belt (180k) as the upper covers and timing belt (from LT and RT cam pulleys) have to be removed in order to change the Crank/Cyl Sensor.

cool, thanks, I will definitely shop around for better prices, I had the 60k service done at this same place for $450. The place i took it to is one of those Honda/Acura specialist places. I thought i'd get a better deal than going to an Acura dealer. I talked to the owner and some of the staff at the shop while I was waiting. The owner has a Z28, one Tech has a 5.0, and the other an Avenger. I found that kinda interesting, thanks again all

I'd definately say get in touch with Mr. Woods from Raceconcepts for the cross drilled/slotted rotors which will be no more than $260 shipped and for all four brake pads they should be around $80 or $90. I bought me an antenna mast and motor out here in NYC for $50 and the hood strut shouldnt cost that much unless your getting genuine acura parts but if you dont wanna pay that much then look around.
