Weren't on the two pre production cars I've examined up close but hope they do appear as that's cool. Seen the same thing on the multispokes in pictures too.

I think I kinda like the gold(ish) coloured Calipers... is that how they'll come if you don't spec the paint option? Or will they come like the plain sliver ones?

So what will the caliper say, just Brembo or RS by Brembo?
Rs by Brembo Gareth :yep:

I'm more disappointed they're not putting Brembos on the rear! Every other car of it's type has had Brembos all round!

Rear brakes only handle some 10% of the braking tbh, so honestly it's not really an issue. I'd rather have good fat front brakes...

...and a hydraulic handbrake :laughing:

Me too and far more from an aesthetic point of view than a performance one. The rear brakes look pathetic under 19" wheels. They're more suited to a go cart than a top of the range Focus.

They had to save money somewhere to meet the price tag ;) if they had put things like completely unneeded brembos on the back then we would all be moaning about the high price of the thing

Does anyone have any photos of the back brakes? and if you choice to have the calipers painted do they do all four or is it just the bigger front ones?

Don't think it would make that much of a difference in the great scheme of it.

Not with that one thing no...... But people haven't just mentioned that one thing that they think should come as standard. It's not really a discussion lol, if the base spec was higher then the base price would also be higher.
