I recently purchased a used 2019 G70 2.0 RWD sports package. While inspecting the car I noticed that the brake assembly was red in color. I knew that this car did not have the Brembo brakes (it wasn’t on the original window sticker). It appears that the previous owner simply painted the assembly. I also noticed that the paint was flaking off and the original finish is coming through. My question is two-fold; will the paint flakes cause any problems with the brakes? Second, if The brakes should be replaced any recommendations on how to proceed?

Chances are it will not cause any problems at all. You will be just fine. If you wanted to expedite the paint degradation and eventual removal, try spraying the calipers down with brake cleaner, it will make the paint more inclined to come off. Otherwise it's fine to just let them flake - the only downside is that they will look dumb and cheap.

Please post pics, though, for my own curiousity.

I had calipers painted on my previous car which was red, thus red with red. I liked the look. After a few years there was a bit of paint loss, I assume from stones and assorted debris. It was a quality paint job and I had extra paint if I wanted to do it again but I sold it when I bought the G70.

Thanks, that puts my heart at ease. Here are pics. It is beginning to look dumb.

^Agreed.

Dang...it does look silly. That's a bummer! Oh well, at least they're working just the same as before dingus mcderp painted them.
