Brake conversion for 145
has anyone done a brake conversion on their 145, or does anyone know of a 145 with a big brake conversion?
I want to change my stock disks and calipers for the new GTV ones, just on the front, is this possible? My car is increasingly being used as a show car, and I also like to race her to show a couple of arogant german car drivers how it is done in style, hence i want to upgrade my brakes.
Will my standard 145 15" rims fit? (i sometimes like to use them for auto-x's and track days) If not, will my 17" momo racers fit, i'm sure they will, cause the GTV's here came with 16" wheels? Cause if they don't then i can't go for it.
Reason i'm asking so many questions is cause Alfa parts cost a fortune here, so i don't want to order the GTV calipers etc, just to find they don't fit when they get here.
My eventual plan for my 145 is to make her almost a 145 GTA, keeping as much Alfa as possible, effectively i want her to look, go, and stop like a performance 145 that was never realised.
