Where to get Brembo's painted in SoCal?

Hey guys,


Do any of you have any recommendations for getting calipers painted in SoCal? I am not looking for the cheapest company but at the same time not looking for the most expensive either. If you have any recommendations I would appreciate it. I am planning on ordering my new BBK in the next few months as the distributors do not have the rears in stock until May. If you can provide me with some names that you have used for this I would appreciate it.


Thanks!

No idea about Cali, I was thinking about painting my own then changed my mind for fear that the paint might peel off.

I guess I'll wait till I need new brakes then get a nice performance set in colour perhaps even the BMW one. My benz has nice ones in the front showing Mercedes on a black cover plate. The back ones are plain don't know why.

Correct me if I'm mistaken but the M performance brakes have only 4 pistons in the front and 2 in the rear right? I would rather have Brembo's or Stop Tech with 6 pistons in the front and 4 in the rear for roughly the same money. We mod the heck out of our cars so we can replace OEM parts with better ones right? But again, I don't claim to be an expert.

I'm not sure about that, I've never fancied to be a break man ... all I know is they are different front and back as they are on my Benz. I like better ones for sure and they must come painted blue or near the blue of my car

Perhaps someone can chime in on your piston question ... I think you are correct.

"Only" four pistons???????

What kind of wimp would want those crappy six piston calipers when there are Brembo 8 piston calipers out there?

What I would really like to see is a 10 piston caliper. Is any company building awesome 12 piston calipers?

This has been taken care of. Paint will be by LTBMW once the new kit arrives.
