  3. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Hi all I'd like to know what the best brake upgrade options are.. I've noticed a few using the Alfa 166 V6 Brembo calipers. I'm assuming these require adapters making up? They seem good value for a good upgrade! Does anyone know, is it just the 166 or can the GTV ones be used also?

    been suspecting for a few weeks that the shells were on their way out, suspicions confirmed this morning as I was trying to overtake my mate in the 316 I sold to him recently and there was no power, followed by a loud and dull knocking from the bottom end. No uncommon, but annoying. block...

    I used to be a member 'Alfaowner.com' - having had a 156 2.4 diesel prior to selling it and buying a 2nd BMW. I've always been surprised at the silly remarks on the forum about BMW drivers blah blah blah, but now I'm driving a BMW (the wife has a new one, I'm driving her old one) I'm horrified...
