Hi to all,

Since I bought my 147 I've been annoyed by the state of the callipers (see attached) as they look k**ckered. The brakes function fine except for the rear callipers which have become a little sticky, it involves rocking the car back and forth a few times to get them to loosen. As it's due a service next month would you ask for a normal brake service to make sure everything's in order, or is this a result of my miserly 3500-4000 miles a year?

At some point I'd like to paint them because the two-tone rust look is not all that desirable. So to fellow 147/GT owners, what colour have you painted yours? Brembo red looks good on the GT but I've seen some painted with the satin colour on the mirror surrounds. Plus, no-one seems to stock replacement callipers apart from the GTA Brembo kits and only the rears are available new from the usual suppliers.

Cheers.
