Like everybody else has said.............no way dude. You can do it yourself. I got the tool via amazon. If you want some good used GT rotors and pads with only 17k miles on them I will sell you mine. Took them off to upgrade. Just PM me.

Go to www.brakeperformance.com that should give you an idea on price as for the compression tool... i have never used anything other than clamps, oe a long screw driver for the brembos. What is this tool i must visit harbor freight for?

On my '05, you can get away with just a 4" C-Clamp to compress the piston of the front caliper. On the back, the piston must be rotated while simultaneously being compressed back into the caliper. The tool has the pins that fit into the piston to do so.

Fordplay, you have the Brembo package if I am reading what you typed correctly, so you might not have that issue. I know on my 05 with stock calipers it was a must.

I will google tonite, but I'm in the same boat...diy or pay someone...I'd rather do it myself, but have never done anything with brakes...Is there a good write up (taco bill?) for the s197? Do i have to bleed? I will be replacing rotors and pads...

The Haynes Manual has a pretty detailed write-up.
For about $30 at Autozone, they're a viable assest for any DIYer.
(I've had a Haynes Manual for every car I've owned).
You'll reach new levels of intimacy with your ride.
