    Hi,

    I'm thinking of painting my calipers red.
    Was thinking of using Por 15.
    Anyone tackled this job?
    Any idea of the colour of the calipers painted from Audi?

    Cheers

    Robbie

    G2 is another good brand and easy to apply.

    If you out decals on, make sure you borrow the missus' nail vanish laquer and put some on top of the decals. It stops them peeling off.

    @Baj257 what discs did you use? What size. Impossible for me to find anything aftermarket for the fronts. 318mm discs.

    That’s great. They must have released them in the last few months because I’ve been looking at EBC. Don’t know why they don’t make the front pads to go with them. I’d rather go for the slotted ones for reduced wind noise. £208 for both fronts is good (they sell in pairs). I’ve contacted them before about the front pads. Just have to wait they say.

    Are oem brakes pads on the b9 ceramic or metallic! I’m still under 200 bhp (190ps in mine) so I can use green stuff unless someone recommended redstuff. Just worried about initial bite.

    I’ve got the red stuff rear pads, they are fine no bite. You only notice they are different when you break hard at high speed.

    I have ferodo front pads, work a treat.

    You might be able to cut around the letter with a sharp knife and peel them off. They would have a few coats of lacquer on I would think. Depending on how they put them on you might get away with just scuffing the caliper face with some red scotch brite and spraying a few coats of lacquer. Failing that you could rub it off with some 120 grit and re paint the side of the calliper.

    Buy a different car? Put calipers on from a different model? Instead of putting TDI badges on the back of the S4, trying to remove the caliper 'S' badging, trying to make it quieter, etc, etc. why not just chop it in for something less performance oriented or showy?
