I just realised that I have never opened a thread for mine! :)

Today we had a small tuning & styling car show in Rijeka, so I took the chance for a nice photo!

I call this "Red on red"! :)

I like the next one even more. At first I thought that the red wall behind will be a problem (it's a Kika store in Rijeka), but at the end it turned out as a great backdrop!

One more in "Rosso su rosso" series... ;)

It seems that our GTVs are beautiful from just about every angle! It's really hard to make a bad photo of 916!

Great car and photos :thumbsup: . Write something more about the car. I asked you about your brake setup some times ago (before I join this forum), will be good to write something about that on here :) .

Thanks Joris! :) The main advantage of such large disks is that it's impossible to overheat them on the road, and it's hard to do it even on the track. Also, as the callipers are on the longer arms, they seem to be more efficient so I felt there is no need to go for more powerful six pot brakes. As the disks are grooved and drilled the brakes are loud (you can hear wuuussshhh sound) and that is something I especially love as it's easier to drive when you have sound feedback from the brakes.

Thanks to the light alloy centre piece the disks are not so much heavier than the original setup. Light alloy is quite fragile and during years I had to replace one dish as it cracked on several places after I got pads stuck because of rust on disks after some rain and a week of non-use.

19" wheels are must with such setup as 18" usually doesn't fit. Some 18" does fit (OZ Crono for example) but there is just 1 mm between the calliper and the wheel and I felt very uncomfortable with that (even a small stone between could do a lot of damage).

Well, you can't be more precise - I'll have a new set of photos this Sunday as we have traditional annual Alfa meet in Rijeka! :)
