Interesting Stuff this. After driving 214 SEi's for many years, my next R8 will be a 216 (Honda engine). Having never has a 216 before I'll have a whole lot of new learning to do.wellsm wrote:Ref the Honda ALB people, don't even bother trying! I spent weeks looking for a unit and then when I got a second hand one nobody could locate the tool to bleed it anywhere. I ended up having it removed and a standard brake system installed, which is what the first 216gti I had in 1992 was anyway :-)
I imagine 216 Gti wheels would be worth storing if there was space as I am sure they must be pretty irreplaceable now.
So what's this ALB - anti lock brakes? How will I know if I've got a problem with these?
How much is conversion to a "standard brake system" and what's involved in this?
