Black, Yellow, Gray, Red My point is they all cost $595. It's BS you can't get the color you want when your ordering a 3LT package or Z06.

Red calipers are definitely faster than gray calipers

On some trim levels black is standard, on others it costs the same $595. The base model, for example, comes with gray, and black costs extra. The Z51 comes with black, and gray costs extra.

The only color I would have considered paying extra for is DSOM, to match my car. But I probably wouldn't have been willing to pay $600.

$595 vs DIY. DIY. GM's mission is to extract as much money from our wallets as possible.

I think the red calipers ARE torch red actually. I see no difference on my Torch Red Z51.

Maybe you mean Crystal Red.

So the torch red model with red calipers I saw at the dealership looked bad when it comes to paint match.

@Dupson picture of his red calipers and car looks pretty good.

Not sure must have been a different batch or something.
