Beautifull Alfa you have there commendatore thumbs: Tastefully done.I fitted Tarox Sport Japan fast road discs and pads to my GTV.They squeeled a bit for about 2-3 months after bedding in, but now are great:) Very impressed with stopping power.Although when the discs have heat in them you can feel and hear the grooves and drilled holes whilst breaking.

This is a peculiarity with all the drilled or grooved discs that I've used too - a droning sound when braking that gets louder when hotter or under really heavy braking.

Had to thank my Brembos the other day when a truck pulled out in front of me - 100kms to zero in about 20 yards :thumbs:

Nice Disc's, they look a great bit of kit!

Supersprint looks good aswell, doesn't sit right tho imo, not sure what it is but then the standard pipes don't sit right neither. I think the hole in the bumper is too big and maybe the tailpipe needs to sit alittle bit further back, but just a tad.

Stunning looking car, what she sound like with the Supersprint. I've found in the past Euro exhaust like Supersprint and Remus are more performance than sound. Is it just a back box or full system too

thnx" for compliments about discs..:)


p.s. I agree about SuperSprint,,, i did some modifications about sitting right, but still does not sitt as I want,,,, otherwise, that is standard position of the ss exhaust...

pp.ss. it is a rear box and central pipe from SuperSprint
