    Brake Callipers with Audi Emblem

    Guys I've seen some pics of Audi's with red brake callipers that have the audi emblem on. Do you know where I can get these and also can you get them for the A3 8P?

    And finally if you can get them can you get them in different colours?

    Your help is appreciated.

    I think your on about the painted calipers. You can get the caliper paint from Halfords, and the decals from ebay.

    I used normal caliper paint from Halfords on my 6 month old WRX calipers (which were corroding badly) to smarten them up. Even after hard use and alot of heat going through the calipers the paint still looked in very good condition.

    The key to a decent long lasting finish is spend loads of time on prep to make sure the calipers are 100% clean.

    Did it take long to do Simon? Easy enough for anyone to do? Much preperation involved?

    I did it when the car was brand new so was a case of spray with brake cleaner and paint 2 coats then stick the emblems on when the paint drys and then lacquer over the stickers.

    Simple job simply done
