Are your calipers painted? They stand out, I like it...spray or brush or powder coat?

Yes sir, I painted them and also put some decals on them. I used high temp calliper paint and brushed it on, only issue is I Have to keep touching them up. Here is a close up pic, you can also see my valve caps.

Did you order online or local in Toronto? My '13 Sport doesn't come with them and I think it adds a great touch. Would need them sprayed to colour match though but I don't think that'll run too much.

I got them from my dealer (Islington Chrysler) and had them colour matched by my neighbour who manages a local body shop. Cost me ~ $300 to get them painted and I did the installation myself.

Check out eBay, there's plenty listed that are prepainted and I paid $260 shipped. The tape on the flares was not damaged but not super sticky so I just added a thin coat of black adhesive sealant...screws are already in your fenders for the liners. Hour to install and used painters tape to hold the flares on until adhesive setup (one hour). Acetone to wipe off any excess. Super easy.


RansRAM - what causes the touch up on the calipers, I've never had to touch any I've painted but I've lived in the south mostly. Is it a salt issue?
