    Hi guys, ive just ordered the Brembo GT brake kit for S3 which will be fitted later this month, so was wondering if anyone has had experience colour coding their rear calipers, as i'd like them to match.

    Do i need to take the calipers off or can i do it with them on the car?

    Any help or advice would be appretiated.

    Cheers

    I used FOLIATEC paint. It can be bought from Halfords from £19.99

    It gives a high gloss finish.

    I painted my caliper while they were on the car...........just take a lot of time to prepare the calipers and it is possible!
