    They are now available on the shop, is that a new thing? I knew that we could buy the spoiler but now the caliper are available

    Nice! $2.3k? hmmm. I'm about to (re)place my next Model S order, wish these were part of the factory options for non-Perf models.

    That's got to have the decimal off a place, right? Holy crap! The EVANNEX red covers are $230! I saw a can of red, high-temp epoxy paint for calipers this weekend at DAP for $7.50! Are you kidding? $2,300?!!!

    I work at a car parts supplier and we have rebuilt caliper that can go up to 400$ each in rebuilt version so I can imagine brand new tesla caliper going for around 2K a set.... plus installation that would bring you 2.3k I guess.

    It appears that these are not covers, but actual caliper replacements and pads, plus installation.

    Makes the $5K for the ludicrous upgrade seem only insane not ludicrous.
