that said, i went with turner. they are great guys and have always been easy to deal with. metal master pads and tms rotors. look good, cant wait to see how they feel when the job is done
Can you explain the need to use a scan tool for bleeding. How is it used? I can't see where this would be needed for bleeding and/or replacing brake fluid. Of course you need to reset change interval after replacing fluid.
