    Did you do it yourself?

    Maybe lower the car as well a little?

    I did it myself with proper heat resistant 2-stage paints etc. Rear could be lowered a bit but I'm slightly scared if there would be any rubbing issues. It's at stock ride height in rear, front might be slightly lowered.

    Calipers look good,and i bet you like them more cos you did it yourself, dont lower the rear, with 360 wheels on you will definetly have rubbing issues with standard dampas on.

    Exactly, thx! For me part of fun is doing/improving something on car, not just driving. Advice taken about lowering, I thought that too.

    Love the calipers.

    I'm really not sure about that bulbous sunroof you've added though. Ruins the lines a bit

    Easier to get fresh air than removing targa top
    Next mod will be Porterfield pads.

    Don't know about those. Really looking for some decent ones for my 355 that don't squeal too much. What's good about Porterfields?

    They have got very positive feedback on "the other site" and I think Chaa is running om them, maybe he can comment? I will go for R4S pads that are fast road pads, most of the people said that they got rid of squealing and stopping power is very good. I'm not sure where there some modification needed to fit 355 due to different?? brake warning sensor but at least for 348 they are direct fit. Club Scuderia sponsor RicambiAmerica is selling them so Daniel can propably tell more!
