    Curious, anyone tried of know for a non P85D version, such as 70D is it possible to add the red Caliper . It looks pretty slick!


    Oops, meant Caliper

    Sorry for my naïveté, but what is this "Red Clipper" you speak of? :confused:

    Check over on the Tesla Forum. I did a feature on DIY red calipers. Came out great. They are $3k to buy.

    FWIW, when we ordered my wife's just delivered S70D, I asked about getting red brake calipers installed as a special order. Was told that there were no exceptions, only for P85D. So options are the caliper covers (which do not have the TM lettering/logos) or painting and then applying aftermarket high-heat decals (as noted above).

    The EvAnnex ones look fantastic, but you can definitely tell it's not OEM. I actually really like the look, but that's a matter of personal preference.

    link to EBay seller of Tesla stickers? Did you remove the calipers when you painted? Do you have a link for Amazon paint?

    I had a local rim repair shop do mine. $200 and they supplied the paint and stickers. I did the stickers in grey to match my rims though instead of the factory white.

    I might have done it myself, but I don't have a floor jack anymore....and it was totally worth it to just pay someone else.

    MagesticSound and ddimit - what did you use for jack stands to lift the car to remove all 4 wheels at one time to paint the calipers?

    Also, MajesticSound, did you put a clear coat on afterwards?
