  1. Upgrading pre 08 non Brembo brakes to Brembos?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Is it gonna be a straight swap or are we looking at changing the hub and everything which may not be worth it? I really dig the look of the larger front brake callipers in the post 08 models.
  2. 166 Brembos onto a 156 2.5 V6??

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Can anybody enlighten me whether the 4-pot Brembos from a 166 V6 will fit onto my 156 V6 2.5?? I already have 166 wheels which should hopefully clear the bigger calipers. I appreciate I will need 166 discs too which are 310mm Thanks in advance :thumbup:
  3. Squeaking brakes on brembos?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I've noticed that my Sportiva with the upgraded Brembo brakes squeak when stopping for traffic and low-ish speeds is this normal? If not, how can I address it? Cheers

  5. Refurbed by Brembos

    Alfa GTA
    Refurbed my Brembos My brakes were looking a little past their best, especially after having the wheels refurbished recently. One side wasn't too bad but the other had lost most of its lacquer and turned a nice shade of matt pink. The cost to get them powder coated was too expensive to justify...
  6. Will 17 inch 'selespeed' speedline alloys fit over 330 brembos

    Alfa GTA
    Hear me out this is a strange one. I am getting my alloys powdercoated by a local company that does all sorts for powdercoating bits of classic cars. Problem is they do not have facilities for taking tyres off. (I know) Question is I have some 17 inch 5 hole Selespeed alloy wheels that I am in...
  7. Which Brembos

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi guys, Looking to upgrade the brakes from standard to brembos if possible. I've searched but can't seem to find the info I need. Can anyone tell me whether I can pick up some calipers from another car? If so, will they go straight on or will I need brackets etc? Also what size discs can be...
  8. Changing disks on Brera S - 330mm brembos

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, sorry for the dumb question, but I want to replace my front disks on my Brera S, it has the 330mm disks with Brembo callipers. My concern is that on the back of the calliper there is a solid brake pipe connected, so I am thinking to remove the calliper to allow me to fit the disks, I will...

Any one here who knows if any of the following wheels fits my car without interfering with the calipers: ATS Emotion 17x7.5 ET35 Ronal R54...
  10. Any success case? Fitting 156 GTA upright and brembos to 2.0TS

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I've got a pair of 156 GTA upright and a set of 4-pot brembo from a Fiat Coupe 20V Turbo, and a pair of new 305mm discs. I want to fit these to my existing 2.0TS 156. I've also got a set of 17" GTA rims for the fitment. I know the wheel bearing for 2.0TS needs to be swapped to the GTA...

  12. 19" WSP Italy wheels over Brembos......

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Possibly looking at buying a set of the WSP Italy W251 gunmetal wheels (159 Ti reps) but the one thing i'm struggling to find is if the 19's fit over the standard Brembo's on the Brera or 159 (assuming it's the same setup on some 159's) I've searched and found a few people that have had no...
  13. Refurbushing and powder coating the brembos

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I bought a set of old GTV brembos a while back - any ideas how much it is to have it stripped, refurbished and powder coated? I have the relevant refurbishing parts but I can't get the screws which hold the 2 halves together which is why I think I need it professionally done.

  15. Cheap pins for 305 mm Brembos

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, Trying to find sensibly priced front brake pad pins for Brembo 305 mm callipers. These seem to be much more expensive than the longer 330 mm pins as the prices I'm seeing are around £100 for a set!

    Alfa MiTo
    Could someone nip out to their TB or QV and measure the distance from the brake disc face to the front of the caliper body please, thanks :) wrinx
  17. 156 brake upgrade to 166 brembos

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Okay, been searching and cannot seem to find a definitive answer on this. Can anyone tell me exactly what parts are required to fit Brembos from a 166, to a 156 2.5 V6? As far as I can tell it is 166 calipers and pads, different discs (but which?!) and custom brackets. Am I missing any other...

  19. Upgrading to V6 Brembos

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    What do I need to upgrade my 2.0 GTV to the brembos from the V6. Obviously calipers and discs but what else. Hubs and uprights? Is that all?
  20. Brembos from 2.0 ts Cup

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello folks, do you know the brembo kit from 2.0ts are pcd 2x100 or is similar like 3.0 v6 version with 2x130mm. If somebody know they are plug and play? I had before from 3.0 v6 brembos but didn't fix them because I need special spacers(mine is 2.0ts). Thank you and sorry for my english: )
