I have no idea what brake caliper painting pricing should be. I found one shop around me that does it and they quoted $1100 which seems really high compared to the two prices I've seen on other forums.

Can anyone please post what you paid or were quoted?

Doing this myself is not something I'm willing to take on unfortunately.

I paid $280 to get my calipers painted and added white Tesla logo decal (In Socal) and shop provides lifetime warranty on the paint. I also got my wheels painted in color match pearl white to my model 3 (3 stage paint)

Yeah looks like your area is pretty pricey for this to be done. Would you try shopping in other near by cities for better quotes. Are you willing to drive to get the work done at a cheaper cost?

I've attached pics of my calipers done.

There’s a place called NV coatings in Northern VA that does it for $400-500 was my quote. Is it normal that they won’t take the calipers off the car when they do it? I think maybe they powder coat it, whatever that means. Also, they won’t provide the white Tesla decal....do you guys know where I can get a good quality decal that won’t get destroyed on the caliper? Should they be made of a certain material? How will red calipers look on 18” TST Sportsline turbine space gray wheels on a blue model 3? Thanks!
