Red Breaks, question

Guys
I dont know how you say this in English, but I want something red behind the wheels, I want it to look like Porsches I didnt see an m3 yet with the red ones!
I dont go on the circuit so an advanced superexpensive system is not necessary.
Whats the best option?
Painting? ( which paint? dangerous?)
Or Brembos? ( expensive? others?)

Thanks

If you're gonna do it, do it right: Brembos FTW.

I completely understand what you are saying.

You should stick with brands like Brembo or Stoptech. We can get both for you, and we'll definitely set something nice up for you. PM me for a great deal

I know someone that bought a Lambo off the showroom floor and wanted to change the colour of the brakes, the cost was prohibitive to bring new ones into Australia from the factory so he got the colour changed by sending the calipers to a caliper reconditioning company.

Now I don't know if its 2 pack, powercoat or heat enamel but you could not tell he had it done.

Exactly. Point being, there is no need to spend the extra $6000 if you're interested in looks, rather than performance.

Send a message via MSN to montreal red
if you just want something red, bring the car into a good local body shop and they should be able to do powdercoating of your calipers.

this will cost around $400 i think... even its slightly more, it will never be as expensive as getting 6 pot brembos for $6000
