    Re: Red calipers for 2013

    Sarah thank you for checking our order, both the new car manager and salesman at the dealer told us, that it was their personal experience from when the yellow calipers became available that it took about a month longer than the normal CTS-V order time of two months, because people were excited over the new option and Brembo just could not make them in sufficient quantities to meet the initial demands.

    Re: Red calipers for 2013

    Good morning James.H.Beasley,

    I checked and the most recent notes on your order is that it has been accepted by production control. I checked to see if there would be any way for you to track your order on your own, but it looks as though at this time either your dealership or us would have to check in on it for you (which we're happy to do!).

    If you ever wanted for us to check, just give a shout!

    Sarah, thank you once more for taking time out of your schedule to check on our order, I was just hoping that I could get some kind of an alert message when the red calipers were in fact available for actual production of the CTS-V due to the Brembo constraints, but I have plenty time and not in any rush.

    Call Luke at Lindsay Cadillac. He'd let you know the second they were available...

    Any word from the parts gurus if the red calipers are available for order and pricing?

    Re: Red calipers for 2013

    looks like all four are now available from GM but the pricing has not come down any ... still pretty outrageous

    i guess that's their way of encouraging you to just buy a new car

    Re: Red calipers for 2013

    Excuse me,but why would anyone pay several hundred dollars for calipers painted red or yellow ?My 2013 raven V sedan would look chintzy with painted calipers which also would alert our traffic cops that what they saw was more than an old fart driving a Cadillac!!

    Well, thanks to my man Chris at Rippy, I now have a set of red calipers on my crystal red V Coupe.

    It is still in storage off and on. I will post some pics when the weather gets warmer.
