Alfa GT brake discs and pads
Finally, it is time to change my brake discs and pads for my GT 1.9 JTD... However, I am not sure which to choose.
The price for an original set of front+rear discs+pads is very close to that of an EBC Sport Disc+Green stuff pad set. I have read a lot of threads about EBC brakes, and there is a mix of opinions about them, some saying they are crappy, and some happy about them.
Now, I am not doing any track days or something, so it will be basic street usage, and being in Switzerland not necessarily harsh usage. However, since price-wise they are close, it might make sense to go for better looking discs and pads. On the other hand, the original ones felt good enough for me until now, too, and the word "original" sounds safer ;-)
So, what would you suggest? Keep old school and go original, or, get the sporty ones, they are better looking and functioning than originals?
.. And does using different brand require updating calipers or hoses or something for safety?
