For anyone that tracks with a silver BBK have you had any problems with color changing after heat cycling between track temps. For example:

i would say that is the case for most calipers but if they are prepped, painted, and cleared (high temp) correctly, this will be much less of an issue. stoptech and brembo calipers' paint leaves a lot to be desired imo. that goes for a lot of calipers including oe ones like the amg ones.

Just to update the thread I ended up going with the Silver caliper, which I think is subtle and classy yet still visible. Honestly my top two options before I ever thought I would get a BBK were 1. Silver and 2. Yellow. Yellow just doesn't flow as nicely on silver as it does on white sooo silver it is.

I'll post pics up around Thanksgiving when I get them installed and thanks for everyones help.


PS... If anyone is in need of a BBK contact Simon@Rennspec. This guy is amazing! He was super patient as I went from slotted rotors and called a day later to switch to drilled and just now going from red calipers to silver. Always willing to accommodate my requests and I will definitely be sending my business there first before I think about another vendor! I have NEVER experienced such friendly sales and I've dealt with a lot of the vendors here. Its unfortunate they cant all be this easy to deal with.
