Be interested to hear about your experiences on here ... recently acquired ex-Dutch TV series TB in my hands (brakes as per 3.0 12V Spider), and as always I look at the brakes and invariably want bigger/gruntier ones. Done several conversions over the years but always open to better ideas
To be honest it was just a case of swapping in the P2 hubs and purchasing a set of refurbished Brembo calipers from Autolusso and new drilled/grooved discs all around. Really big improvement plus look much better too. I don't have the performance (or need) to go to 330mm set up with my mildly tuned 12V 3.0.

I do not know what hubs specifically they were (just phase 2 3.0 V6 GTV) and the job wasn't hard for the garage. They had more issues with changing the rear brakes to the refurbished ones i they supplied - they needed some small re-routing of the lines to fit.
I'm on the look out for a cheap gtv or spider anything will be considered but I'd prefer one with red or tan interior but for the right price I'll consider something else! I'm located near Worcester in the midlands let me know what you've got!
While fitting the new head unit to my GTV and removing the boot trim to fit the DAB splitter I found two spare wires. Can anyone identify them ?
First one (blue connector) was behind the radio on the passenger side. The chopped wires are probably from a phone install but the plug looks OEM - CD...
Many of the models on here have a ''What did you do to your .......today'' thought it might be interesting here for our beloved 916s.
I'll start the ball rolling.
I have a Busso Spider and she was due an annual service:
1. Changed the oil and filter
2. Put a foam Pipercross (lifetime) filter...
Before anyone thinks I've gone insane (actually I probably have), this is the last project I'll be green lighting for a while now. I've got plenty to keep me occupied now for the coming years, I wouldn't say I've finished just yet but in terms of adding anything in the short term that is...
Did Alfa change the design of the boot latch at any point?
The one in my car looks like this:
My new replacement looks like this:
Note how on the new replacement, the gold bar to the right of the microswitch is a lot longer and the white plastic clip where the solenoid pole plugs into is in...
