New Cadillac CTS-V 6 Piston Yellow Brembo Calipers Front & Rear w/pads pins ZL1 | eBay

I think the powdercoated yellow will look the best on my light blue wrap, but I am open to suggestions. I'm also willing to buy from a vendor on here if they have any brembo brake calipers. I'm not sure how good our stock brakes are suppose to be but I don't feel like mine are up to par. I was looking for new calipers and found these. Does anyone have any experience with these or can someone offer another brand that works well for our cars. I will also be buying new rotors while I'm at it to fix everything all at once. Thanks, Jay

Where did you purchase them from Karch? I'm pretty sure I have 20" wheels so I shouldn't have any fitment issues. Thanks, Jay

Have you checked out Wilwood for your DMax? They offer 6 piston calipers and 15”-16” rotors depending on the year…

The V2 stock brakes are well respected. Many other platforms do a brake swap to the V2.
We had a guy on here with a G8 GTX with V2 brakes.

Checked my wheels and they're nineteens. I'm pretty sure the web page said you have to have 20's for those specific calipers. I'll check again to make sure.

These are stock V2 calipers. Why wouldn't they work? They are the same calipers your car came with.

I think he meant Karch's with the 16" rotors?

Maybe I'm reading differently than he meant it? He asks if anyone has tried these. THAT'S why I said they are what's on his car.

My bad guys, I didn't know our cars came stock with brembo brakes. In the supra world, this is an upgrade, not stock. I bought brembo for my supra as an upgrade because it needed them badly.

Now that I know they're the same, I guess all I need to do is powdercoat them yellow. I don't know of a local shop that does it where they can still put the V on them after the powdercoating.

Buy that set and sell your stock ones on ebay when you swap.
I did that a few years back when I swapped from silver to yellow and ended up with only about $250 out of pocket.

However you choose, if you go with powder there are people that sell the high temp decals for the calipers, I’ve seen them on eBay etc just google it

You're not so mean Mike.........thanks for the decals. I ordered them already and I'll powdercoat my existing calipers when my new yellow powder gets here. Thanks for the help guys.

WHAT? I’m don’t mean to act Karch here, but you’ve got 232 post on here and at this point you didn’t know V2’s came with Brembo brakes? Am I missing something?🤷🏻‍♂️ #Justsayin
