Thanks for that. It's an early 2000, so should be the right ones.
I see you've done a Brembo conversion.... were you unhappy with the original set up? What did that lot cost you? I like Brembos... got them on my Ducati!
The car has been dealer serviced from new and I have all the receipts except one. The rear discs and pads were replaced recently, not sure about the front ones without checking through, but I think they're original (72000 miles) or were replaced at 36000 (the receipt I don't have...). Either way would suggest that they need doing now, given your comment. The last receipt warned that pads were wearing and would need checking in 6000 miles (now 4000 miles). Looking through the wheel, they look OK at the moment, although obviously I can only see the outside ones. The disks 'look' OK, but I haven't had a micrometer in there.
Ah... correction. Have just been to have another look and the disks and they have a fair wear lip on the outer edge. Probably not half a mm, but a noticeable ridge. Assuming it's the same on the other side then they must be fairly much through their life. Come on then, guys. If I have to replace disks and pads what do I use? Not too expensive, please.... rather under Alfa prices than over!
