My 1.8 Sport estate has ventilated discs on the front and drums on the rear.To be honest,the 1.8 doesn't justify having discs on the rear!
The front discs are a pretty large diameter though,and the brakes on mine are very strong.I have recently changed the front discs and pads,but I haven't got round to checking the rear shoes yet.The MOT didn't show up anything untoward with the rears,and the handbrake travel is still short.Lag 1's do tend to suffer with long handbrake travel,and this is usually a sign of the shoes being worn or out of adjustment.
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
