@Stu GTV - exhaust sounds great, but it's too loud on long trips and very tiresome on fast highway drive. You can check MP3 here (never as good as live): http://dpasaric.kreativni.hr/Audio/G...%20Exhaust.mp3

@crf - those are SPR custom made discs, it's a small workshop here that prepares racing cars, I am afraid you can't order them, but I am sure that some tuning workshop at your place can make something similar. Yes, they have lightweight rotors and so are marginally heavier than original. Front is 14" and rear 13", quite large and with 18" there was just 1 mm of clearance at front, so I had to use 19" wheels. Good news is that they are almost impossible to overheat even on a track, so there is zero fading.

Ok thanks
Sounds expensive, so I guess I'll go for the new Brembo co-cast brake discs if I can find them somewhere! One piece floating-like discs with alu hats and a 15-20% weight saving compared to OEM Brembo discs... not bad!
Can be seen here:

Wow! Floating discs on a car is a superb option! Let us know if you install these!

I'm currently looking for new wheels...

Tried Zender Milano and Zender Siena but no luck.

Tried 18" BBS LM but no luck.

So it's down to these two:

18" Gallardo Replicas:
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/18-LAMBO-ALLOY...item5191901ea7

18" Audi R8 Replicas:
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/18-TWIN-SPOKE-...item5191ba0414

Don't want to risk 19's as I have standard shocks.

I'm surprised no-one has fitted the Lamborghini Gallardo replicas, they are quite 'Alfa' and similar to teledials with the circular pattern.

They'd probably look better in 19" though.

Fred, they are 19" Superleggera, thanks!

Toxy! My favorite wheels for GTV are Zender Sienas! They are so "in place" on a GTV, they have Alfa compatible design, I love them! Your GTV looks great! I have noticed that you have colored rear lights cluster all in red. I have seen that mod on a black one and it was great, and it's even better on a red one! Please, tell me how you did it and what to look for?

Colo, thanks! I really love my GTV it's my hobby and my "boy dreams come true" love!
