  2. Front brake discs

    Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    I'm looking to replace the front discs on my t/s. When I've removed the hub & disc from the car, does the disc just need to be pressed out from the hub as it's a tight fit. The workshop manual isn't clear at all. Thanks.

  6. Brake discs and pads for Quadrifoglio

    Alfa Giulia
    Just planning ahead a bit and wondered how many miles people were getting out of front brake pads and discs? Also, does anyone know the standard disc thickness and the minimum? My car has done about 23,000 miles now and I expect the front pads won't be too far off (although no track days)...
  7. Ventilated brake discs

    General Motoring Discussion
    Folks - Allowing for variables, is one possible benefit of ventilated discs, pad longevity/slightly reduced pad wear? Accept that’s probably not the primary benefit, but could it be - at least - an incidental one? Any thoughts/wisdom?
