The dealer swapped mine out with new ones, but they are beginning to discolor again. only water being used on them so it's nothing I or the detailer are doing.

Brakes get hot, heat affects finishes. I would almost expect this to happen more than I wouldnt.

Well that is true, however Brembo isn't new at making brakes and I haven't ever seen the same diminishing finishes on other Brembo calipers on different cars. Only some of the people on this forum are experiencing this so I think it's a manufacturing defect on the finish with only certain batches. Enough complaints haven't been filed in order to get Brembo or GM to do a blast out to all of the dealerships since that will cost a ton of money.

With that being said, anyone else experiencing this should take their car to the dealer and start there. That will build the number of cases with GM and make it easier for others to get this problem remedied in the future. Go from the service rep, to the service manager, and then to the GM regional rep from there if they don't do anything.

thanks you in advance for any feedback.
I had the same problem. My car had about 300 miles on it when I noticed. I went to the dealer and we looked at about 5 new ones sitting on the lot and they were all doing the same thing and worse. I came to the conclusion to just get them powder coated. I did a post on this same thing last year and a few other people said they had the same thing going on.

My headers looked nice and new when I installed them. (they were). Anyways after starting the car and driving it, they dont look new any more.

Seriously. You are expecting too much if you think the calipers are going to look new forever.
