159 brake upgrade
I was a bit disappointed with the performance of the standard brakes of my 159 2.4, so when 'unfortunately' my front rotors warped, I decided to upgrade the whole thing, now i have front cross drilled Brembo discs + EBC Redstuff pads while on the rear I got only EBC Redstuff pads with the original discs.
I wouldn't post this if I was happy with the performance of my new brake system, but I'm not, so what can I do now to improve it? I would like some more pedal feel and more bite. I'm not using the car for track days so I just want it to feel better for my street driving.
I'm now running on high performance winter tires with 245 width on quite warm weather (so the grip is out of question), and I've properly bedded in the brakes.
Is there any place where I can buy brake braided hoses for a 159 - been searching the web and I couldn't find any - I've heard those help a lot and changing the brake fluid as well.
