    Like you I find myself almost breaking my neck at the detriment of safety to all those around me to gaze at one of these on the rare occasions that you actually see one in the wild! Lovely colour too.

    Are the ceramic brakes not a future option? As I'm sure they could be upgraded even though they weren't part of the spec list when purchased new. Or is it that as an option before delivery they aren't too badly priced but then once you want to buy them at a later date they are horrendous? (Thinking of the ceramic option for the GT-R where it was a little over 10k if fitted at the factory but closer to 30k later down the line).

    In terms of is it doable as a retrofit I’d certainly imagine so, my M4 had them and before trading that car in I sold and retrofitted them to another chaps car (4500 in my pocket for a days work)
    Discs, calipers, heat shields and brake servo needed to be swapped over on that car)

    I’ve not priced them up with the main dealer yet but I can’t find any used items available anywhere to get an idea of price.

    The biggest factor is that the oem brakes are actually very good, 6 pot front 360x32 with two piece discs and 4 pot rear 350x28 two piece discs so it’s not like they are desperate for a upgrade.

    I might be better having custom bigger discs made and simply spacing the caliper as they are radial mounted too.

    The M3/4 ceramics could be had as a full set for circa 8k brand new from AD iirc.

    Lovely Alfa

    IMO one of the best looking and arguably most desirable 4 door family barges on the market.

    And THAT engine !!

    Cheers guys

    Another quick update, when the car went in to have the new springs fitted the Alfa Romeo dealer managed to put a small scuff on the rear bumper :angry:
    To make matters worse they did the typical 'see if he notices trick' which i did the next morning.
    I called them and advised them of the damage and tbf they offered to have it repaired foc, however after digging a little i found out they use a scuffs and scratches repair chap......outdoors.

    The car is totally immaculate with not even a stone chip so suffice to say i wasn't happy with this, i tried getting them to pay for me to have it done by my local and trusted guy which they didn't entertain. Far from happy but not about to trust them to do the work i booked it in with my local chap to get rectified.

    It was so small i even briefly considered leaving it but it just seemed silly on such a immaculate car and i know it would annoy me.

    So whilst it was in being done i asked them to colour code my keys, AR do actually do these but not in my colour :dough:

    They are also, wait for it.......150 Errrrrrr no.

    My painter did them for free result!
