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...

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.

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

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!

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
