Are the front brake calipers of the 8v and 1.8 16v cars (257mm discs) the same as any of the Fiat range ?????

Marlon the parts disc shows the Caliper as being used on the 1.7 16v 145 & 146, but doesn't show any compatible Fiat Units. :rolleyes:

Not as cool as that I'm afraid. EBC do uprated reconditioned calipers and they are much cheaper than OE parts. They don't do the 155, but they list a few Fiats and Lancias, so maybe could get these instaed if they were the same.
As an example, a rear caliper for a 164 costs about £55 from EBC.
For the 33, the fronts are about £45. You have to send them your old calipers in exchange, but that's still cheap I reckon.

What about the calipers I have off my 155 2.0 w/b? I could bring them to Keswick?

Depends how much you want for them. I'd need the carrier frames aswell. (plus discs and pads :()
