Considering that most people use their Giulia as an everyday car, with occasional track days at most, I think this confirms that the CC brakes are a useless upgrade for 99.99% of owners out there.

I do not know of anywhere outside a race track where I could brake nine times from 80 to 18 without causing an accident and break multiple laws. So, on the street, the CC brakes will nearly always be sub-optimal.

Preheating the carbon ceramic material brake discs
The brake discs must be warmed up to make them fully efficient. You are advised to perform the following procedure: brake nine times from 80 mph (130 km/h) to 18 mph (30 km/h) with deceleration equal to 0.7g (the longitudinal acceleration value is shown on the instrument panel display by setting RACE mode and selecting the “Performance” page) with 20 second intervals between brake applications; keep the car at a speed comprised between 36 mph (60 km/h) and 60 mph (100 km/h) and do not brake for 240 seconds to allow the brakes to cool down; then brake three times from 120 mph (200 km/h) to 18 mph (30 km/h) with deceleration equal to 1.1g (ABS operation) with 30 second intervals between brake applications; keep the car at a speed comprised between 36 mph (60 km/h) and 60 mph (100 km/h) and do not brake for 300 seconds to allow the brakes to cool down.
