Fitting Brembo's to none Brembo'd 159
Today I have tried to fit the Alfa 166 Brembos to my 159, the mounting bolts line up perfectly, even the bolts are the correct length, the other problem I thought I'd have is how the pads sit on the disc, as the 166 disc is 5mm bigger diameter I thought the pads would over hang on the top edge but they dont, they sit pretty much flush and also sit perfectly on the inner edge.
The disc back plate also needs to be trimmed back slightly
The only problem is that the brake flexi is about 30mm too short, it will fit but is being stretched on full lock which is no good so I will need to get longer hoses made up.
Over all this will be a very straight forward and relatively cheap upgrade.
