Dave, thank you very much for your answer. I could smell a rat from a mile away. Unfortunately the very reliable and classy SAAB dealership I've been using since 1998 has been bought out by a Pontiac dealer. This was my first visit to the new dealer and it left a bad taste in my mouth (I was actually yelled at by the kid who fetches the keys to the cars because I couldn't understand something he was mumbling from 30 yards away!!!). Anyway, I must've seemed stupid enough to the slick-o at the dealer's - the funny thing is that the breaks work like a charm, no sign of trouble, no sounds etc. The car is a lease-I got another 1.5 years/18K miles to go. I don't have much of a taste for the new models so I might end up keeping it thereafter. I may very well end up changing the rotors and pads myself if/when needed - the eEuroparts prices sure seem reasonable. I would *love* instructions about the job. Again, thanks a lot. John
