    Hey fellow Tesla owners and prospective owners, I am planning on having my model 3 calipers painted. I know of a place that does a pretty good job on them, they are located in Scarborough. I found about these guys after a good friend of mine had his done with them and I thought they did a good job on his.

    They currently have 9 different color choices, which you could see what the choices are on their website. They are currently offering several promotions, one of which is for Teslas. The regular price is $220 for any of the models (including the upcoming 3) but they are offering a promotional price of $180. This consists of calipers grinded/sanded & painted, decals added on, and rotors cleaned & painted black/silver.

    They are called SpenceTire and their website is http://www.spencetire.com/home.html

    They are appointment only and take an average of about 2 hours for a Tesla.

    Why in the world would you do that? Red calipers indicate advanced brakes, and you would become a poser/imposter. Why would you do that? It seems like painting racing stripes on an antique car.
