    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi everyone. I am about to become the proud owner of a Prodrive Brera 2.2 JTS 58 plate.

The garage I am getting the car from has recommended Tarox front discs and pads and have given me...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Sorry I have asked ths before but still have a problem. Anyone got, or had, Tarox grooved (but not drilled) discs and cured them of squeaking? Mine are unbearable, screaming rather than screaming. (330mm GTA conversion if it makes a difference). Ive had Ferodo DS2500 which sounded like metal on...

  9. Ferodo DS2500 + Tarox grooved - dont

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just a tip if you doing the GTA brake upgrade, and I suspect even if you arent but are putting on Tarox grooved discs. I did this and put Ferodo DS2500 pads on as everyone seems to say these are the absolute best on the market. That may be the case, but I tried it and they scream like a banshee...

  11. Anyone with experience of TAROX F2000 discs and Corsa pads?

    Tuning & Upgrades
    As the title really, I've been toying with something a bit meatier for the v6 to replace what are pretty mediocre brakes in my opinion.. I've already got a full set of Braided brake lines from Alfaholics, but stopping wise the car's wooly.. Got a bit of a brake imbalance too, although at MOT...

But my brakes have been squealing like a banshee ever since. It doesnt always happen, it seems to only happen after i'm been driving for a bit &...
  18. Tarox G88 or Black Diamond Combi Discs?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've decided that if Alfa want £160 for OEM front discs I may as well get some performance discs instead. I'm strangely drawn to the Tarox G88 (£189 + £9p&p) but have also had the Blackdiamond Combi recommended (£137 + £10p&p - they must use a nice box :D ). Whichever I fit will be with Ferodo...
  19. TarOx, Red Dot or DBA Kangaroo Paw

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey guys, I am thinking of improving my car's braking performance. (it is a Thai assembled 156 2.0TS). There is some fade on the stock system, but I do not think it is a result of wear and tear because my car is only 8 months old and I have never been to the track. Has anyone changed their...
