    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Gtv 3.2 I have upgraded fronts to 330s, are there any upgrades for the rears? And if so does it make a difference and how will it impact on the balance between front and rear eg will the rears lock up due to system unbalanced?

    I'm an ex BMW man and quite often with BM's you could fit the brakes from a bigger or sportier model as a 'breakers yard upgrade'. I have a heavy right foot and wouldn't mind a little extra braking power but given that I only paid £600 for the car, I won't be buying this Brembo upgrade kit at...
