Re: Brake rotors on the 166
I believe the discs are standard Alfa discs - unfortunately Brembo only supply the calipers to Alfa.
Tarox have a good reputation for quality and would be a worth while improvement especially if you go for the grooved discs.
The grooves are designed to clean the pad of any used pad material while you are braking resulting in better, more consistent braking and reduced hot spots on the disc. The down side of these grooves is slightly noisy braking when braking hard and possibly reduced pad life.
You should also replace the brake pads when fitting new discs and replace the brake fluid.
I've not used Tarox pads recently but I think there are a number of guys from Malaysia using Tarox stuff with good results.
