Re: Front disc wear
After 24,000 miles I have plenty of depth (not significantly worn) on the pads on my 147 1.6TS. My earlier 145 were shot at 14,000 miles and the discs had a significant lip on the edge - but this was still ok according to the dealership at 36,000 miles. Mybe Alfas have improved there disc pads. But certainly I would expect some wear to the disc surface as well. It would be interesting to see what others experience was for disc replacement - I've heard that it's one of those items that can be a nice earner for dealers that need to generate some cash.
