    Brembo Brakes for FiFi....

    So FiFi's brakes have a moderate shudder to them, when applied aggressivly at around 80 mph. The rotors are warped, but some folks would just turn them and call it a day.

    I never turn rotors. A rotor is like a sponge, that absorbs heat. When you turn them you remove mass. Less mass equals less heat required to make them warp again... so why bother.

    I looked around and brake parts are real cheap, even for "name brands". A whole Bendix set up is about $150, for everything.

    I kept looking, and found Brembo makes a consumer level setup, for $200. At that price point you know the stuff is coming from China, but if Brembo is willing to put their name on it, how bad can it be....right?

    So it showed up, and sure enough the box say's "Made in China"..... but the stuff looks tip top! Comes with all new hardware too.

    So why pinch penny's on some No-Name brand you've never, ever heard of that's made in China, when you can have BREMBO!( made in China)

    Has anyone run these yet?

    I'll get them on this weekend, and give you my thoughts...

    I've always ran Brembo replacements on all my cars. All the stuff I recall was made in Italy or Europe at least in the old days, but I haven't checked in a while and the last set of brakes I did weren't Brembos. I'd rather take a chance with a name brand, so I'd have no issue getting them. Nearly everything is from China anyway. Even OEM parts.

    All I care, if the pads are ceramic. Can’t not stand brake dust, and dirty wheels. Personally, I just replace the rotors with the OEM one. I bought EBC pads, and rotors. On one of my other cars. Really dirty brake dust, and they squealed terrible. What’s on my 500 now, was made in Mexico.

    Bendix, Raybesto, Bosch, Wagner, and Centric. Are all good brands for Rotors, and brake pads.

    The OEM ones warped, why would I buy another set of those?

    The Brembo's are OEM style... None of that drilling and slotting and more drilling jive. Just good, solid , parts.

    I think these are knock offs. Which China is known to do. Like buying a Chinese made Rolex.

    I checked and Brembo is the supplier of OEM Brake discs on the 500.

    Interesting. The only thing is that the OEM front pads on the Abarth are semi-metallic. I think the fronts listed on that chart is for the standard 500. The backs on that chart list the Turbo cars. The rears also are supposed to be semi-metallic, too.

    From the Press Release:

    Track-proven brake system
    The Fiat 500 Abarth features a high-performance brake system with an Abarth-tuned electronic
    stability control (ESC) system designed for at-the-limit driving.


    At the front, the Fiat 500 Abarth features 2.1-inch (54 mm) diameter single-piston front-brake
    calipers with semi-metallic brake linings for greater stopping power. Larger 11.1-inch (282 mm)
    (up from 10.1-inch; 257 mm) diameter ventilated rotors provide additional surface-heat
    dissipation. The 9.4-inch (240 mm) rear disc-brake system features single-piston brake calipers
    with semi-metallic brake linings to mitigate brake fade at higher temperatures. Both front- and
    rear-brake calipers are lacquered in Rosso paint for an athletic look.
