you have the brembo callipers so will need to specify these when you order via ''send seller a message'' and does the Ti have 330mm rotors instead of 308mm???
when i did mine on thursday, i struggled like hell to get the callipers off, the 2 19mm head bolts on the back have been loctite in by Alfa, i mannaged to snap my breaker bar!
small tip, when you get wheel off, turn full lock to the left when doing left, and right when doing right wheel.
i used a large screw driver to press the pistons back in.
word of warning tho, leave the old pads in when you are doing this so you dont dammage your piston.
remove the lid of your brake fluid and put an old rag on the top to stop a brake fluid spill ( very very bad if you get any on your paint work)
when you rebuild, put copper grease on the brake hub that the wheel meets with and some on the back of the pad.
forgot so say, to remove one of the pads, you need to remove the slider, these are behind the 2 rubber caps, i think it was a 6 or 8 mm allen key, and you will need to clean these up before puttin back in, a bit of 240 emery cloth will do.
make sure everything is tight an pump you brake pedal a few times before driving and go easy on the brakes for apx 100-200 mile as they bed in
should take about 1 1/2 hours if you have the know how and correct tools
