Fisker Brembo Calipers and Rotors.

Hey guys I have some spare Fisker Brembo Calipers and Rotors. They are brand new and unused or even mounted, spare parts. I am selling them for a friend, so if anyone is interested let me know $4k obo. I am new to this site being a Mopar guy, but on LX Forums I have a 100% I trader score and posted a lot and I'm a trusted seller. I am in SoCal and can arrange a pickup to cut shipping costs. Here is a link below.
Thanks,
Suspman

Yep a while ago.
Figured so only way you would get new rotors in the box and calipers . I wish you luck on the sale it's going to be a tough thing to sell . I haven't seen any caliper failures or rotor warpage since we have been open. And the cars I have on the road with higher mileage the brake pads look brand new still .

Cool thanks. Yeah I know, being a new and limited sold car. Some other cars use the same or similar enough spec so I thought I'd put them here too to cover my bases.

I think you need to bump harder unless you find someone that was in an accident and broke a caliper they are going to be hard to sell .We haven't seen any problems with the calipers and since they were made by Brembo I don't think you will see one fail for a very long time

Are they made exclusively for Fisker or may we by them as standard caliper from Bremboo... just without Fisker logo on it?

You can do whatever you can get your hands on but usually the Brembo only branded parts are more expensive than the OEM ones for specific cars. The new Camaro shares the same calipers and rotors except for the rotor bolt pattern. The ZR1 Corvette uses a similar caliper but different mounting and carbon rotors. The new Lexus super car uses these calipers too, not sure of their mounting though.

Does anyone know anything about having brake calipers refinished in a different color?
What would like to know if you Powder coat them they have to be taken apart and resealed they can be painted but be careful what paint you use since brake fluid and paint don't like each other . I have plenty of customers that have painted calipers .

I had painted calipers on a previous car as well. The heat faded the color pretty quickly.

IMHO, I'd powder coat them by a professional.

Must of been a crappy paint job or crap paint I haven't had any problems with painted calipers . The prep work is key to a proper job. I painted the calipers on my Corvette and never had a problem . I've enter the car in numerous car shows and taken trophy's with the car .

I am in southern CA., and there are a couple powder coat shops by me. If you go for it completely u need to cmpletely disassemble the calipers halves and prob buy a rebuild kit from brembo since the piston seals could be damaged on removal. Also multiple pistons is a pain to get em out with compressed air but doable.
You can get specific caliper paint now that will take the heat and abuse. I'm sure you can fimd it on Google and a zillion DIY people doing it.

Buy my calipers and you won't have to take them off your car to get them done.
