156 2.4 jtd 20v Sportwagon upgrade project
Any suggestions or recommendations on the upgrading of my recently purchased 2004, 156 2.4jtd 20v veloce sportwagon would be much appreciated.
The car has only done 45000 miles and am planning to keep it for many years.
Concerns and priority are brakes and suspension.....scary!
Brakes: Ds2500 pads appear to be best like for like replacements along with new discs, but with so many 284mm to choose from. vented, drilled, solid???
Would love to get hold of Brembo GT upgrade kit (discs up to 305mm) but for the £1200 outlay. Any suggestions or alternatives???
Suspension: Speed bumps driving me crazy! Front end bottoming a low low speeds???
Like the idea of renewing everything down below. Also many kits out there but any suggestions or recommendations for my specific model?
Further on be looking at adding
Re-Map. Any recommendations?
!7'' alloys (on the way) refurb and store until after our winter here in uk is over
16'' Conti winter tyres (on the way) to go on my multispokes
ICE (on the way)
cruise control stalk (hard to find)
Leather interior (in the shed) fitting next week end
Exhaust/back box tail pipe???
Any other suggestions or comments would be great. Thx
