got some money, need advice
ok well a few on here may know that the reason i got an alfa was cos i wrapped my celica 190 last year and fell in love with the 147. i just got a letter from my solicitor and im looking at a very attractive compo packet, and as its going to court it could be even more than they have asked for... more than half the value of my car easily!
anyhow, im happy with the engine work i have done and want to look at the suspension and brakes now.
my plan is to get some good drilled and grooved disks all round matched to some good (dust free) pads. im going to leave the actual system alone as i feel the calipers and disk size is more than enough. as for suspension, i want a completely new setup, and some degree of lowering, most likely 40mm drop. im also going to look into front and rear struts and an uprated anti roll bar. finally im going to tint my windows cos i have always wanted to tint them!
can you guys share with me your opinions on what to look for with new suspension, what makes to avoid, any specific drops to avoid (im rollin on 17s, 215/45) and also any advice on choosing the right brake/pad combo to give me best performance. i know the back brakes are not as vital and i could probably get away leaving them stock but i would rather have the same setup all round. are 'black diamond' disks any good? i love the fact they are black lol
thanks yet again for ya help.
