Hi,

Firstly, full disclosure. I drive a Stelvio but actively read this forum. I still dream of getting a Giuliu one day. I thought I'd raise my question here given there are more Australians and a dedicated sub-forum.

My Stelvio (2.2 Diesel Q4) brakes are due for a replacement soon so I rang up two authorised dealers in Sydney and was quoted (AUD inc GST):

Front pads: 425
Front rotors: 590
Rear pads: 275
Rear rotors: 2105
Total: 3245

The advisor on the phone was surprised himself at the cost and did mention the rear rotors were 380 (+gst) previously and FCA only changed the price recently. While I want to support our local market and see Alfa Romeo thrive, I can't justify paying this amount when I can order the same parts from Alfaworkshop in the UK for ~1500 (which includes 530 delivery).

If you live in Australia, where are you sourcing your parts from?

The issue is that some mechanics may refuse to fit parts that are bought elsewhere unless you can do it yourself.

Having said that for Giulia I found DBA (Disc Brakes Australia) have a listing for rotors and there is an option for slotted ones aswell, Bosch have a listing for brakepads.

I'm due for brakes aswell so shopping around. It might be the case of upgrading with performance parts might be cheaper than replacing with original!

Just joined this forum (admittedly I'm not a Giulia owner, GT here), but there's a number of places I source parts from overseas that are cheaper and quite often faster than buying local. Autolusso, EB spares, Shop4Parts to name a few, also locally there's Arese Spares. Plenty of options around, just need to do a bit of internet digging!

I just ordered my brakes from Arese Spares. Easy and hassle free. Vlade was quick to respond and had me sorted over the phone.
