I'm confused. You want to take one of the true great vehicles in its stock form and change some goofy things like the navigation and brake calipers? (it's calipers by the way, not capilers). Also you can't really see brake pads so getting red ones won't do you any good. And to 'cover' the brake assembly to give you red??? Anyone else not buying this? Not exactly an enthusiast.
