    I recently had my 16' 90D done up with window tint and red brake calipers. I have to post this as the gentleman in Toronto who specializes in Caliper painting, did nothing short of phenomenal work. Price was $250! Including OEM Tesla decals and 3 coats of paint/2 coats clear coat with absolutely zero overspray. Gorgeous final look. I've posted some pics of before, during and after. His measurement of Tesla decals was laser cut exact to OEM spec. I'm impressed and thought I'd share for any non 'P' owners wishing to upgrade their calipers!

    The red compliments dark turbines beautifully.

    I love this look! I wish I could find someone in St. Louis who did this.

    ditto...wish Colorado had a place with a quick turn around since the car is out of commission while the work is being done.

    Those calipers look really awesome! I think I intend to get that done on the calipers of my model 3! Is that $250 for all 4 or each?

    Sure. The owners name is Spence (647) 680-9308. Runs a private shop and has been painting calipers on high end vehicles for some time now.

    He did these in front of me in 2 hours. Jacked the car up and voila! No need for car to be out of commission for long.

    Ok so also managed to get the 'D' symbol decal 'd in matching red to the brake lights!
    While I'm perfectly happy with my 90D vs P90, I wasn't a fan of the D on the rear being in black as it somewhat hides it. Took 10 tries on a laser cut machine to get it perfect!

    Finally pulled the trigger on doing this. Looks amazing and would recommend. Red calipers were not available when I ordered my car...for that matter neither were a lot of other options.

    Just got mine done on Tuesday as well. Job looks very professional, especially considering they do it without pulling them off. Bumped into Ram_Eh while there!

    Looks great! If I had a blue car though, I'd probably have gone for blue.
