New Brake Calipers

I have a RS V6 with the 20'' wheels. Who do you guys recommend for replacement calipers? I want to switch to red.
Thanks!

The JDP CTS-V Brake Upgrade Package would be a huge an awesome caliper for the V6. We also offer custom powder coating as well Feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions.

Best regards,

Denis, Wouldn't SS Brembos cost as much as just getting the V6 ones?

Tyler, Sounds great but I have a kid in college. How much for just the calipers in red?

Understandable. Well if you are just looking for red calipers and not necessarily an upgrade, I would suggest looking for a local powder coating shop and just have them powder coat your stock calipers.

As Denis said, the stock SS Brembo Calipers would be a good upgrade as well. You may be able to find some used calipers in the member classifieds section from a member who has upgraded to the CTS-V package.

Best regards,

Tyler

Soooo you're not trying to upgrade, just change the color?

You got it Denis. The car can't be down while they're sent out to powder coat and I don't like the caliper paint so I thought I'd just switch them.

Apparently that G2 paint is really good.

I used Dupli Color caliper paint on my V6 calipers and it held up great. And I got all 4 done in a day.
When I switched to Brembos, I used VHT Caliper paint and it works great as well.
Here's a pic of one of the Brembos, so you can see how good the paint looks.
