13mm spanner and something to push the pistons back, copper grease for the back of the pads and brake cleaner.

My record is is 9m50s both sides including drinking a cuppa.

G clamp is quite effective to push pistons back, take off the reservoir cap before you do and keep an eye on any fluid spilling out of it

9 minutes 50 for pads on BOTH sides? Heck, folks: I think we've just found a new service centre Wink
Impressive....I think it'd take me that long just to get the trolly jack out of storage!

Man, I probably spend that much time just swearing...
(There's enough room in my garage to work comfortably on ONE side at a time... Kind of sucks when I need to work on the passenger side of the car... )

Could probably manage that time on my first car, though...

Open the bleed nipple when pushing the pistons back - avoids issues with ABS afterwards.
