    Very nice, I like that, super shiny stuff, did you spray or brush paint the stuff as it looks very smooth?

    Checked with Max, calipers were sprayed hence why they are nice and smooth. He used a vht brake caliper paint as it's quite thin he applied about 10 coats.

    That's what I hope to use on mine, used it before and it very easy to use, just need to see if I can get the right colour I'm after :smile:

    Bits look great, let's hope they improve performance too! (If not no worries, as it looks so good :smile: )

    My thoughts exactly - like I said that was the main reason to be honest to make it look smarter, but one can hope for a few more BHP! my friend told me red is the fastest colour so in theory should see 220bhp when mapped?

    Looks great mate. It's one of those weird mods where you are never really going to feel much out of it but it can only do good!

    Good on you for getting it done.

    Very nice indeed, massive transformation on the calipers! The red cover looks the business too!
