I read that heat doesn't dissipate; rather it gets trapped. Beside, it is right down ugly.

I think your referencing the AMG camp and the charcoal filters on M156/63 series vehicles. I've done it on my car.

Tischer sells a red caliper upgrade for anyone interested. It is the exact same caliper that comes on our cars however they are red. They are 303 for the rears x 2 and 383 for the fronts x2. Spoke to Jason at tischer and he said he will do a group buy of 5 of us for free shipping. I have not purchased yet so obviously no pics but its our existing oem caliper in red. If you are interested in a group buy with me send me a pm
