My Mk3 ZS - Brake Calipers

Recommended Posts

 

As said before, it really is child's play.

I ordered a kit for £16.99 from amazon and had it sorted in a few hours. The red is after three coats

must get around to doing this on mine as it does make a big difference.

 

Adds 20Bhp instantly,

Just be sure to have enough time to do both sides before driving; otherwise it torque steers towards the painted side. 🤭

It certainly makes the cars look better rather than rusty looking calipers.

Do you all reckon it was just a rumour on the forums about someone's insurance not paying out because they didn't declare painted calipers?

I've not declared mine but I just repainted them silver so they always look like new.

I reckon it's a rumour but if it's true;

It's not a rumour sadly, insurance really are that petty, painted calipers should be declared.

Someone had their insurance void last week because of fitting a gas bonnet strut instead of the manual stay!

Admiral insisted on putting my ST style pack (which includes painted calipers) down as 'exterior decorative changes', even though I told them that it came out of the factory like that and 1 of the 3 'decorative changes' was interior not exterior 🙄

What gets my 🐐 up is, just because some cars are on a PCP plan or other kind of "rented" scheme and they are unable to do such minor cosmetic mods, those of us who actually own they're cars have to pay a senseless premium to make them look and perform better.

🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬
