Most expensive part ???

I've recently had to replace the front disc brake rotors and pads for the wife's 2002 CL Focus hatch. The car has only done just above 30,000km's.

I had some harder, after-market discs and pads fitted in liu of the genuine Ford parts - as even the service manager looking after the car admitted it could happen again in another 30,000km using the Ford parts. The after-market are expected to last b/w 80-100,000km, and only cost me $530 (with pads guaranteed for life !)


Being a European model (2002 model), obviously parts are expensive, I've heard that front and rear mud-flap sets cost around $400 for the Focus
-what's the most expensive part you've had to replace on your Focus ???

..I'd hate to know how much a transmission costs !!!!!

Eh? Front and rears for this model cost £47.99 GBP, don't know where you're getting that price from.

I'm in Australia, so after conversion (multiply by around 3) and taxes, plus installation, it was about $200 for the front, and around the same for the rear - which is why I was quoted $400 by my dealer.

Re: Most expensive part ???

Here is the solution. Get a set from the UK and install them yourself.
Do I have to do all the thinking for you??????
