Hello lads. I'm building a Punto HGT Abarth that will replace my 1.2 8v as a daily driver but I also wanna track it from time to time. Previous owner told me brakes are one thing that ask for an upgrade if I'm looking for the car to be dependable over extended periods of time of hard driving.

I was wondering what combination of disc + caliper and from what car would be the best option? Ideally I'd want to avoid having to change the hubs, tie rods and stuff like that.
Anyone with any experience of a brake upgrade on a prefacelift Punto HGT, please feel free to leave your thoughts. Cheers!

Later HGT's had bigger brakes fitted at the front (257mm to 284mm discs). They bolt straight on with the bigger calipers.
