I test drove a C32 a few days ago and noticed that the front wheels has beautiful AMG Calipers, but the rear had dingi steel ones....is this normal?

If so, are there after-market calipers that would match the front.

Thanks in advance for your input.

The front ones are simply embossed with the AMG logo, that's all [:)]

Thanks-aren't the rear calipers a differnt finish?

Thanks - aren't the rear calipers a differnt finish? The front one's seemed to have much more of a sheen to them....and you're right they have the AMG logo embossed.

Are the rear calipers the same material and finish, just no logo?

Ditto on Normal...

It is normal, but they complete setup is AMG certified. I even tried to work on getting a second set ordered to install it for the back but was told that this is "...not a good thing to do..."

The front calipers have the ///AMG logos painted onto them, and then sprayed with a layer of clearcoat to provide for the glossy finish. The rears on the other hand, do not have this.

Hmm, if so, I too wonder if that is a good thing. It might alter the brake bias too severely, therefore I'm not certain if I would do it either. Besides, the front brakes do 60-80% of the work, so this would be majorly for looks only [:)]
