Well refurbished calipers for IS-F costs like £400 per caliper (most of calipers you find are re-manufactured/refurbished), this is £400 for all 4, so I think it is actually cheap.

Im having my wheels refurbed with BCS in the next couple of weeks (taking advantage of their pay December and do in January 30% off) but hence their old name "Brake Calliper Specialist" they do more callipers I gather. Quality looks good and they paint callipers for McLaren so says their Website.  Now BSC Automotive they do wheels too and I will be happy to post up later how I get on.

I have no affiliation to these guys but just happen to be local.

As for colour @Twellsie how about Aston Martin Acrid Lime. that would look good with black.

Or Orange will be a nod to how Lexus see things. Am I right to think ISF had option orange callipers in US or Japan but not Europe / UK ?? look good all the same on a GSF.

Have you decided yet ??

I've decided to do mine myself... I've done it on previous cars I've owned with great results. My old blue IS200 ones I did in red and bought Lexus decals to put in the calipers too... really sets them off.

I've ordered the paint to do the calipers on my new IS300h and being Fuji red I decided against red calipers this time favouring a mid grey... with decals again. I'll get pictures when I do it... I'll wait for warmer weather first lol
