Humm, those don't look like the OEM lug bolts, did you get spacers??? Sure as hell didn't get any wheel washing tools. :hilarious:

Don't worry, my wheels look much worse. You can only do so much...

Are you missing a chunk of sidewall at the 1 o'clock position too?

silver center caps? That, or you got wheel cleaner products that you haven't used yet. ;)

OK I cheated a bit and looked at your profile. It shows that you have a "Cayman", not a "S". Unless there is a typo, your calipers shouldn't be red!

still wrong but really really close....in a way....correct in I have a cayman and and not an "S"....and the calipers are painted...just not red.....they are powder coated and a spot-on match for my interior color....you can thank the iphone again for the crappy picture.

Great detective work there "PI" stolPete.....and yes a chunk out of my tire thanks to the phine philly roadways...messed up my rim as well but that was fixed.

>>>can you tell what I got for Christmas ?

A sense of humor.

You have done nothing to the car but revel in watching a gagle of anal retentive Cayman nuts intently analyzing the photo?

Close?

:)

Dammit, I was going to say the caliper color looked a little off, but you kept mentioning the iPhone photos so I dismissed it.

I have see examples of the red "S" rotors that have been tracked extensively change color due to the heat.

Now did you remove all 4 calipers and sent them out to paint or did you do them on the car?

Could you also post some pics of the interior too? I have a 997.2 C2S with the two tone Terracota/black interior with black carpet.

Is your Cayman similar to mine?

calipers were completely removed, cleaned and prepped, then powered coated for really great results, placed back on the cayman and bleed the system....my only regret is that I didn't buck up and get the bigger brakes then go ahead and get them powder coated...but these brakes work just fine for me

Interesting. There's another thread going on about the black Cayman calipers fading to silver over time, were yours heading in that direction?

Any theories on why this would happen since you were able to examine the calipers close up?

I did notice this as well BUT I noticed this happened almost immediately after cleaning my wheels with ps2 cleaner - so I stopped using the product - works great for the wheels but not the calibers
