    Just got my new (used) 2014 Model S last month and wanted to see if anyone has any Red Calipers they may have taken off or didn't want any longer. Would love to see these on my baby!

    You can save some money, and mask yours off and spray paint them yourself!

    And then wait a month for them to chip and look like total @!$!$. If you are paying that much for a car, get the calipers done right. I put a red set on my wifes P85 Grey ... they really made the care pop.

    If you don't want to have your car out of service and go through the hassle of taking apart your brakes, I have a set of Tesla brakes that you can buy, send to a shop to do the powder coating, and then replace yours.

    Had mine painted white 18 months ago, along with the Tesla stencil painted black. Looks awesome and not a chip on it. Most paint guys can do this for a few hundred dollars.

    Red and Black? really generic color for calipers. Why don't you do something different....


    Like yellow, orange or blue. Contrasts and looks better with black.


    But just get them painted instead.

    Got mine done locally for 200.... Multicoat spray with Clearcoat on top. Tesla logos. Holding up great. I did the parking discs as well even though Tesla doesn't. Looks amazing with my grey turbine Rial Lugano rims.

    Have them painted.. total waste to buy new ones. A quality shop can do it and they will not chip unless you hit them with your rims.
    You can find the logos online that are exactly like the stock ones.

    G2 is what I used. Then put the Tesla vinyl decal over the top. After drying I sprayed with high temp clear coat. Several days later of letting it all cure I then applied a ceramic coating (9H on hardness) scale.

    Does the avatar show red calipers for the P cars (that actually have it)?
