Brakes on the 2.2 Spider
What are everyone's opinions on the Spider braking system ?
Who is running around with the factory brakes and are you happy on them ?
Who has upgraded
Normal driving mine seem as good as I have had on other cars but I have had a few occasions where I have hit the brakes hard expecting it to slam the nose down and I have been left wanting to say the least, a couple have been really hairy stops.
I feel that a Brembo upgrade might be the way to go, I have looked at several threads on Brembos but not found what I am looking for, I'd like to know what the options are and at what cost.
The Spider is a 2.2 LE (2008) and has 19" wheels.
I'd like to think I have a reasonable driving style, I like a bit of fun but I'm not a racer so I'm not after the best of the best just want to feel safer when I need to stop.
