    Red calipers for 2013

    I saw that red calipers will be an option for 2013.

    Any of you parts gurus have any idea if and when we can access a set? My '12 is crystal red and red calipers would look pretty good.

    Re: Red calipers for 2013

    when is a good question ... i'm pretty sure that it will be very similar to the access/availability of the yellow calipers (read: limited)

    i checked recently but they were not available

    the best thing to do if you do want them is to place an order

    that gets you on the list at the top (or near it - i'm pretty sure there's not many orders out there for these yet)

    of course factory (new car) production will take priority over replacement/upgrade orders

    ...

    with the yellow calipers they were making them in single digit batches and usually there were more orders than those batches could handle so they were constantly on backorder

    and that was after they became available initially
    usually they will be available to production sooner than the parts warehouses, but if you have an order placed there's a chance we can get a set pulled from the production line

    Re: Red calipers for 2013

    FYI here's part numbers and list/forum prices:

    Left Front
    #22885106
    $1,411.46 - list price
    $846.88 - forum price

    Right Front
    #22885108
    $1,391.06 - list price
    $834.64 - forum price

    Left Rear
    #22885101
    no pricing available

    Right Rear
    #22885103
    $1,195.40 - list price
    $717.24 - forum price

    so there's no stock available and the left rear doesn't even have any pricing set for it yet

    and on top of that the prices are super high (maybe that will change when they become available)

    ...

    that said, it might be best to hold off on ordering
    1) there's no pricing for the left rear
    2) pricing might change in you favor when they do become available

    ...

    i suggest you remind me to check every couple weeks and we'll stay on top of these for when they do become available

    Re: Red calipers for 2013

    Thanks for the research, Chris. i think I will sit tight for a bit and check back with you later.

    I know from experience that initial pricing is sky high. Found that out when I went to sell a set of yellows.

    Amen on painting them whatever fn color you want. $3000 for a color change? You can get some awesonme powdercoating for a couple hundred TOPS.

    Re: Red calipers for 2013

    do the 2nd Gen calipers turn colors?

    i thought that they didn't

    ...

    well of course they'll turn a color under heavy track use but not like the 1st Gen calipers

    Wow, that's gold.

    After they cool off, do they revert to their original color? Or is it once and always?

    Indeed. Mine has a slight bronzish tint. Not enough days with track pads yet on my V2. Definitely harder to do than the V1s...
