Hello Guys,

as i don't have a 156 anymore my Brake upgrade is for sale - it never went to the car but it's as close as complete as i could think of.

The Kit Contains:

GTA Uprights - Freshly painted (POR15) - including ABS Sensors and new bearings

Set of Phase I Brembo Calipers - nice condition

New original Brake lines fitting the calipers

New Brake Master Cylinder (with has a slightly larger diameter) - intended to improve pedal
feel with the bigger Calipers

TaROX F2000 Discs (new, hard to get in that size)

Project Mu High Friction Pads (new, even harder to get)

---

The Brakes will fit in a 15" Stock Alloy wheel but will need some spacers.
I don't think heat is a big problem on those brakes unless heavy track usage is planned.

A nice upgrade to any 156 as the Stock Brake Discs and Pads realy lack if you are going fast on a twisty road (i managed to crack my brembo discs on EBC pads....)

make me an offer - the setup hast to go.
it won't fit my delta :(

there's no way the upgrades fit in a smaller than 17" wheel, and the smallest wheel I've seen the 305mm brembo in was a 16".
If you make the adapter ever so slightly smaller and trim a bit off the outer edge of the caliper - you can get it to fit in 15" - but there will be so little air movement - the disc's will run WAY hot and it will heat up the wheels - not a good idea :tut:

Shame you are in Germany. I'd probably have taken the lot.

@All

well i did not say that 15inch would be the best way to put it - but i am pretty shure the whole thing WOULD fit the stock 15Inch rim on the Alfa 156 - it will need quite some spacers or the outer side of the caliper will scratch the rim - it is just a thing that might come handy if you are planning on using the car on a day to day basis and still have the stock wheels for the winter tires.... at least that was my mindset as is went for 305mm instead of the bigger ones.

BTW: the missing bolt is somewhere in my basement but unfortunately there is too much of an other car (nissan 200sx) around there so right now i am unable to locate it.

will give a small discount :)

best regards.
