Color options for Brembo calipers?
 
Anyone know if we will be able to choose a color for the Brembo's?

Good question; I'd like to know too... otherwise I'm going to have to paint them and cover up the name...

Xanthos 08-05-2008 02:25 PM

Why not tape off the name when you paint them? Personally, I'll be painting my calipers red. But I honestly don't care that much about the name on them.

Probably going with the black SS. Love to have red calipers with Brembo in white or black

Shadowsong 08-05-2008 02:28 PM

It would be a cool option, but I doubt it will happen.

Thats why they sell caliper paint at O-o-o-o'reilly's.

I could try but I would be worried I would screw it up... I'm not very precise with taping. I suppose I could get a shop to do it for me but that goes back to having to pay someone else to do something aftermarket that I'd just feel better doing myself or having already come with the car... mostly because everything I have to do aftermarket is that much less time I get to drive my Camaro :)

It's a good idea though and I will consider it, for sure!

Would be nice, but if they don't offer color choices I will repaint them myself. ")

I think it will black, but black is hard to see through the wheel... I would like them red!

well weve seen 2 colors on the camaro's from pre production pics. the burnt oragne color and red. ill go with red

BBfan24 08-06-2008 04:13 AM

if there's a choice i might go with body color. if not, i'll be happy with whatever they give us

If you look at the pics of the Aussie V8 intro, it shows the calipers in silver. All the pics at the Nurburgring show them in Red. I hope they will come in red, but it seems OEM's typically get one color with the exception of the higher end stuff. Like Nissan uses the goldish bronze color.

Camaroman_99 08-06-2008 06:26 AM

A color choice would be great! (but at least red)

JEFF2010SSMANUAL 08-06-2008 06:33 AM

I would like red Brembo's. I am not sure about the exterior color yet, but I originally wanted white, but orange is now my top choice, my buddy says to get yellow, but I think it might be too bright.

JEFF2010SSMANUAL 08-06-2008 06:35 AM

The Brembo's on my 2007 Acura TL Type-S were grey.

playhard67 08-06-2008 06:53 AM

Cheryl Pilcher (GM) said that the Brembo's will not be red. I am sorry I cannot find where she said that, But, I know I read it. All will be one color...more like a grey.

some guy on ther Charger forums painted his calipers Sub-lime to match his Daytona R/T, look nice, I would like to see all kinds of colors, think they look cool

GTScott 08-06-2008 01:14 PM

You can always get them powder coated. Around here, they get about $100/pair for front calipers.

EllwynX 08-06-2008 01:21 PM

I want my Camaro in Silver. I don't want any colors showing through the wheels to ruin the clean look. So I hope they're just a basic metal/silver color.

topgun1 08-06-2008 08:26 PM

I want people to be able to see the big red Brembo's on my SS!

ckellyme3 08-06-2008 09:27 PM

its pretty simple to just paint them yourself if you cant choose the colors.
