i have read a lot of posts here but nothing specific.

I want to paint my calipers red. Does anyone know what the exact paint number/code for the 2013 red calipers is? also after you paint them do you loose the V sign on the calipers? Is there a proper way of doing this? is it a pain to remove the calipers?

G2 paint will work well. Put the car on a lift or jack stands, remove the wheels and paint what pieces you want of the caliper (my connection lines are left silver and the gaskets are still black). You will probably need 2 orders of G2 paint, as the front calipers will take up almost an entire order themselves (not enough left to finish the rears). Use the extra to add coats to the front calipers, since those wheels require double the cleaning of the rear wheels.

They'll look factory if done appropriately!

i've been wanting to do the same thing but have been leary of the possible outcome -- don't want it to look like a hack job. as soon as you pull the trigger on this post some pics.
