Cost of new brakes for Giulietta
« on: March 16, 2016, 12:37:46 PM »
I have been quoted $1300 for new pads and rotors for the Giulietta (38,000 K ) - is this fair

Hello Roger, if you think its a bit steep, get a second quote from another Alfa Romeo Dealer, Colin.

Sounds steep. Get a second quote from another dealer or independent specialist.

Would be worth noting if he is replacing front or rear or both.

If they start at 28mm, it's 26mm.

I'm no mechanic, but rotors bolt on and pads clip in.  The hardest part is fiddling with the electronic rotor wear detection sensor.

Chase down the parts online and set aside an afternoon.  Biggest issue is that the rotors are heavy to freight, but you'd still be $000s ahead.

Eh ?  ???

Perchance are we referring to the Brake Pad Wear Sensor Wire?

Itís just as cheap to buy original Alfa/Brembo from the UK and have them shipped (incl. rotors) as it is to get Ďotherí parts ie. DBA, Bosch, etc from SuperCheap.

Replacing the rotors and pads on the front takes about 30mins, no special tools
Replacing the rears requires a special tool to wind the caliper back in

Colin, check out Arese Spares

https://www.aresespares.com.au/home

Choice of Brembo/Alfa Romeo/TRW Brakes & Discs at good prices.

Also Italian Automotive Spares

https://www.italianautomotivespares.com.au/

Many a time between the two you can get what you need at a price that is almost the same as overseas sourced goods without the hassle or wait.

Hello Bazzbazz,

I'll contact Italian Automotive Spares.  Domenic and Robert are nice blokes.  I've bought a fair bit of gear from them in the past. 
However I'm considering the Tarox rotors and pads.  Fitted tarox rotors to the 75 3.0 and very happy with the quality and performance.
