I am finding the brakes on the twinnie lacking in bite and stopping power, and was looking at using Mito 305mm Brembo calipers with the associated standard Mito bracket. Would I be correct in thinking this is a straight, bolt on swap, using a V6 GTV 305mm 28mm disc? Do the early 305mm Giulietta...
I am looking for an adapter for using Alfa 166 Brembo Calipers on GTV 916.
I would want to use the 305x28mm discs and not the 330x28mm.
This would have been the perfect adapter: Link
… but they are not producing anymore.
Are there any other sources/suppliers?
So I attempted to change the front pads on my Giulietta at the weekend. Anticipating the struggle with the pins. New ones were ordered, punches and dremel on hand if required.
Got the passenger side changed after a bit of a battle with the pins.
But the driver's...
First post so be gentle!
I have recently just purchased a 2010 Giulietta (1.4 Multiair) with the upgraded Brembo brakes. This forum has been a fantastic help so far - however, i am struggling with which pads the vehicle uses. ECP has 'another' sale on, but is giving me two options for...
I was wondering if anyone with a non-Brembo 159 or Brera would be interested in a conversion kit I have.
It consists of:
2 x Brembo Calipers
2 x Brembo discs
Brembo Pads Set
2 x new front brake hoses (longer than original)
Pictures to follow
This will convert the original braking to a Brembo...
So it's that time where I'll shortly need new discs as mine are looking a little worn though and I'm reading up on getting some Mtec's for the 159 , lots and lots of conflicting views on these vs the Bremobo's as standard. Now the Brembo's are fine with the pads I have which are also standard ...
Have some issues with original Brembos (stuck bleed nipples and corrosion under the plates causing ill fitting pads).
Have decided to purchase a couple of secondhand ones and rebuild them to swap out as I need some contingency if I snap the seized bleed nipples off.
Talked this through...
I'm going to be fitting new discs and pads on my Brembo equipped Giulietta tomorrow. Can anyone give me a guide to the socket(s) needed to remove the calipers? Are they TX Star heads or standard?
What's involved in fitting 2.4 brembo calipers to a 159 1.9JTDm? Is it a straight bolt on job? Do you need to change to the larger discs or can you use them with the standard ones?
I'm running 17" wheels already.
I've got the chance of getting these alloys for a princely sum of NOTHING once my cousin changes his alloys on his Astra VXR. He's going up to 20". I know the pcd its 110, 65.1 CB 8 inch width rim and an ET of 42 . They are in perfect condition as he only bought them three month ago as a...
Looking to swap my front discs soon as they have warped after only 6months or so (no idea how???), was wondering if anyone has put the brembo version (or other high performance make) on or just went for a stock version? Is the extra cost worth it?
