sorry for hijacking, this is interesting to know, i have a couple of questions if you don't mind me asking, might be useful to my buddies on the punto forum.
are they direct bolt on or do they need a bracket made up?
are they any better than the standard punto GT brakes?
from what model 147 do they come from?
Just called up my mate. Sorry about this, but I made a mistake !
His rear calipers are from a 147 which are exactly the same.
The front ones are from a Fiat Coupe 16V (not the turbo model).
To fit those brakes he changed the complete front hubs - which they fit and are interchangeable.
The only thing he needed to do, is fabricate new ball joints to fit under the new hubs, as the Coupe ones were thicker.
Stopping had improved dramatically ! Up to the point where the tail of the car would kick up on hard breaking ! He then changed his suspension.
From what he told me, he would rather make brackets and fit the bigger 4pot brembos from a 20V Turbo model.
Contrary to what Chris says, I found the rear disc setup to be a big improvement over the original drums (but I guess this depends on the state of the drums beforehand and the discs and pads that replaced them, I used Tarox G88 40 groove discs with Tarox strada pads and braided hoses all round).
I used the original discs and pads mate, but with braided hoses. Made no improvement whatsoever. Handbrake was a bit better I think...
