Alfa Romeo 147 GTA Brembo Brake Calipers Refurbishment (2003-2005)

We are Brembo experts, while we refurbish (also known as overhaul) all brake calipers, 70% of our work is with Brembo calipers and we refurbish over 60 sets every week.  Whether with, or without our functional service (overhaul, re-manufacture), the results we deliver on with our high-end painting service is recognised throughout the UK, the USA, and much of Western Europe.  We occasionally have customers from UAE, Australia, Hong Kong, Italy and more too.  With a following of around 12,000 people on Facebook, we have become a global mini-brand in our trade.

Which Brembo calipers do you have on your Alfa 147 GTA?

Please note, while it makes no difference to us, or the cost of the service to you.  It is useful to know that there are two variations of Brembo for your application as shown below.

Brembo Caliper Type 1 – Used with 330mm x 32mm Brake Discs

Brembo Caliper Type 2 – Used with 305mm x 28mm Brake Discs

Your calipers will probably be red with the Alfa Romeo logo in white, but these are the only two possible calipers which will be on your GTA.  They both work as well as each other housing two 38mm and two 42mm pistons, but the one to the left use a larger disc.
