    For those with keen eye...do these look like genuine VF SSV Redline calipers? They are advertised as that but i am aware that some respray camaro things have been floating around...

    Hard to tell any difference Ron. I reckon the stickers could be a good reference point. I'll suss mine out tomorrow and refer.

    I am guessing that fitting these to my SS would be perfectly legal as they were avaliable on the same series vehicle i.e. VF II Redline

    Well at the end of the day it doesn't require any modification and they bolt straight up and to top it off they are factory fit on the redline.

    They look to be real. Only way to tell is to hold them. Original Holden Brembo calipers have the "Brembo name/logo" screen printed on the Calipers. The resprayed camaro brembos will use a sticker for the "brembo name/logo" which you can feel and see up close.

    On the back of the caliper if it writes "Made in Italy" then it's a genuine Brembo

    They are very expensive retail from holden. Around 3000k with pads.
    I bought these dirt cheap last night.
    $800 for the lot. Will have them by Monday

    Even if they turn out to be the Camaro things, which people seem to be saying they're not, people have come-up with fairly simple ways to get them to fit properly haven't they?

    You know you need discs too, don't you?

    As long as the bolt size is correct you should be good. Were they local? I have seen kits O/S that had to be re tapped to the larger bolt for the VF.

    800 sounds fair. 3 grand is a joke for a set or callipers no matter what brand when all they are is a fancy g clamp full of fluid with a few simple pistons and rubber seals.
