they're made by Mazda - from the 40th Rotary Anniversery special edition RX8.

I was very lucky and found a set on Ebay, in pretty much new condition for £450, from Mazda they're just under £1k

So it has new wheels
From what I can see that could be a new calliper but could just be cleaned up.
Looks like it has been dropped or that just those stunning alloys giving that effect?

Thinking of sorting my callipers out as well... not sure what colour to paint them though.. same colour as the body OR should I go for Gold or something?

I've kept on as a full size spare, have sold one though here, so have the other two for sale.  Both are near mint, will be posting for sale on here soon..

Yes, I repainted the calipers all round, were looking very rusty.  went for a silvery grey colour.

Other changes:
Sport/Airdam side skirts
Colour coded wheel centres
Mazda lowering springs
Chrome exhaust trims

No tyres unfortunately, they went on the new wheels, but I picked up a good Dunlop Sport with 3.5mm from ebay delivered for £40 and used that for the spare
