Brembo's look like a real investment. I just want red brakes.

1 can of Caliper paint and your there. If you want to get real professional sign them with a paint pen and someone will think that you spent a lot of money!

But then you still only have stock brakes, the brembo's look gorgeous! I'll probably paint the '10 brakes too but it'll be the wifey's car.

In my opinion, that would be like putting a 5.0 tag on a V6.

The RED calipers imply UPGRADED brakes.

I done mine 2 months ago used caliper cleaner and caliper paint. masked it all off and it came out good. looks better than plain. And yes if I had the 2000 plus I would get the brake package. It took all of 1/2 a day and 20 bucks.
