    and I'm guessing you don't want the Brembo ones again?

    I don't know if they are any good but these ones are quite cheap  :P

    I literally have no idea...... I presume if done at a Abarth dealer they will fit the same as comes standard.

    Not fussed on getting cheap ones. I wouldnt mind getting something simlar to whats on the SS but I presume its easier  and cheaper to get what comes standard from Abarth,

    You can run the SS pads if you like, they will fit fine, stock pads seemed more than capable though if there is a big price differential.

    TMC also do tarox pads that I can rate as very good, I'm planning upgrading my fronts to tarox disks and pads to match the backs, probably better than brembo SS disks, more expensive too I believe, but they are very good

    But you could upgrade to SS pads, or even EBC greenstuff seemed quite good on my car when I used them on the front, probably as good as the SS pads for a lot less money
