I need to upgrade my brakes!!! Can anyone plz help???
Is it possible to adapt calipers and roters and hand brake set up off a newer Ferrari like a 360
or is it easier to just buy a kit???
As the the upgrade is just for looks i prefer the genuine Ferrari stuff it just looks much better!! So any advice would be much appreciated..... And where is the best place to buy them from???

You'll need 16 or even 18 inch wheels.

Look on superformance website.

Why not just fit the correct wheels.

Upgrading the brakes, and having more grip overstresses 308 chassis, control arms, steering etc.

The cars look great on original 14" wide option wheels, or on 16" original option wheels, without making the brakes look small.

Admittedly, the original 14" skinny wheels look a bit weedy.

Do not listen to Phil, he does not like interesting projects, nor useful and pretty upgrades to cars.

I highly recommend putting these suckers on

C'mon, do it!

There's two kinds of advice available now.

If chosen wisely, and followed, life will be smooth and full of reliable, economic enjoyment of your car.

If chosen poorly, life will be full of workshops, invoices, unreliabilty, pain and frustration.

Press 1 to choose ...... :tilt:

Oh, and 599 has different stud hole layout to 308,   so that stuff uberdude showed you would be $12k down the tube
