What is your application intent? IMO the BP-10's are just "ok" pads. They don't have much bite and they also don't have very good temp resistance, but they're fine for the street.

Thankfully there are plenty of pad options out there for these calipers. Just for reference, they're pad shape Wilwood 6712.

Other vendors incl. R/R, EC, Allison's and WMW also carry Wilwoods for the Abarth. Alternatively, you can upgrade the rotors, brake pads and lines at about half the cost with a significant improvement in braking power for street or track use.

when your a dealer and install 2-6k brake set ups on customers cars and cracked rotors come back I care since the customer is upset at both installer and company.
