    Red Calipers on 997 C2

    Does anyone have tips on getting replacing my standard black calipers for red ones? Options that I am considering are 1) Painting them (by far the cheapest) or 2) Replacing them with after market red ones (Brembo??) - Any suggestions are welcome!! Thx

    Re: Red Calipers on 997 C2

    quite dumb to get new ones just to change the color (maybe if you wanted to ungrade the brakes to some even more serious ones...) and if you have them painted you'll lose the "porsche" written on them. Leave them black

    Re: Red Calipers on 997 C2

    You should have purchased an "S".
    Red calipers do not make for Turbo Brakes.

    Re: Red Calipers on 997 C2

    Check out www.racetechnologies.com/ They can custom paint your calipers to factory standards and retain the PORSCHE lettering.

    Re: Red Calipers on 997 C2

    Actually in the US, you can find many sources for the lettering. There are lots of Porsche being restored here and part of the process of restoring is to get every part back to its original color. This includes restoring the brake calipers by painting/powder coating and applying the lettering.

    Re: Red Calipers on 997 C2

    It appears that the 997 C2 brakes are the same as the 996 C2. If that is the case, then you can put Boxster S Red calipers on your car, and then sell the black 997 calipers on ebay. Your net out of pocket costs will be about $200. This is what I did with my C2, and they look fine.
