Must be a Canada thing. Parts like brake items are not crazy $ here.Biggest problem with the Mazda 6 first gen is that parts are getting hard to find already. Even a non-speed 6 is hard to find parts for in Canada and when you do they are expensive. Just doing a stock brake job on my 04 was $700 in parts and I tried pricing out Speed brakes to do the conversion and I was looking at about $1100 for everything needed. These prices are parts only as well, I do all my own repair work. Mileage doesn't help too, cars that are actually driven are all up there in mileage now.
