Re: newbie 100hp

Welcome Mick, I believe the Bremos are not standard. Timing belt origionaly suppose to be 4/5years, 72k. Belt manufacture apparently did a change to 36k or 36months due to a few premature failures though. So sounds due, especially with such low mileage

As for the exhaust it could be stock, these Pandas sound great for a 1.4!

Get up some pictures

It is quite possible that it's got standard red calipers (part of the Pandamonium pack) ad someone has shelled out 7 off ebay for some Brembo decals. Obviously those stickers do improve braking efficiency by some margin.

There ar various Stainless ehaust options about, some are delivered (Gazaella) some are bespoke. You often get air-filter kits too.

Re: newbie 100hp

As Fiats can consume brake discs, and, as I found out recently, the original pads from Fiat cost a fair whack, it may be that someone has had to replace the original bits and has saved money by opting for Brembo replacements.
