How would they know if the work has been done properly?
If you have ever worked on a car, you know what parts changed are new and what parts are used.
I was meaning that the tests are quite rigorous and adding things like old rotors may fail anyway.
Most garages have the entire check list on what needs to be 100% and what things can pass that are 70% (my hand brake failed because one side was stopping more than the other), and this could only be checked by a garage with a pressure system. Headlights are another item!
You certainly would not get scorned for doing your own work, it may just be a waste of time is all.
