But now Wrich01 has mentioned that the Brembo calipers from the v6 166 will bolt directly onto the standard uprights of a none brembo'd 159 but with the standard size discs, 305mm there is a slight overhang of the pads, approx 2.5mm.

So my later post was that I am planning on doing this conversion to my none Brembo'd 159 and to get around the slight problem of the disc over hang as I need new discs any way I have ordered a set of 330mm 159 discs and am going to have them machined down to 310mm OD.
The only other issue I could for see is if the standard flexi pipe will fit into the new caliper and where abouts on the caliper it fits so would it be long enough.

I think I can get it all fitted including refurbing the calipers for about 200
perfect mate , just what I was after
