I've only heard of the rear reds flaking....

If they're anything except Brembo or LR had a hand in it then I would expect them to flake Laughing 2014.5 SDV6 AB Dynamic ... Fuji /Santorini Pan roof and 22's

Just thinking it might not be too late to change from the Red to the standard (silver?)
Monitoring the things for flaking paint is going to do my f***ing head in!

DRDILL do you have a reference number/code for this issue (like Q543 etc.)? Over 2 months/almost 2,000 miles and mine are still OK but I would like to be prepared when the paint starts flaking off. Referring LR or the dealer to this forum may not be enough if they don't agree to replace the callipers. Just covering all bases even though so far they have accepted and rectified everything I reported without quibble (missing AHBA, fuel slap, seat leather, knocking noise due to a loose cable). Current: MY16 RRS2 3.0 SDV6 Autobiography Dynamic, Carpathian Grey & Santorini Black Sliding Pano/Ebony & Ivory 2 Tone

Reading this freaks me out. Has anyone had this issue with a SVR?

My callipers being replaced on Tuesday ....
I only ever use soap and water on my wheels and yet I was given a dressing down about not using aggressive cleaners on the wheels .... Guess JLR need a scapegoat !!

Just a thought on this, Jaguar F Type has these as standard, has anybody looked on the F Type owner's forums to see if there are similar issues with the paint. Jaguar also get yellow calipers and carbon ceramic discs for an additional GBP 9,000.......... I think I would be very upset if I had paid that sort of money only to have the paint peel off after 6 months. 2015MY Corris Grey SDv6 HSE Dynamic, preceeded by a 2.7SE RRS, a 3.6TDv8 RRS, several FFRR's and 2 Evoques.

IIRC, I was told, the reason the rear calipers are effected and not the front calipers, Is that Brembo know how to paint their calipers. The rears are made by a different manufacturer, who obviously don't know how to prep and paint calipers properly. Whistle
Don't except getting fobbed off by JLR guys. As you say, you have had to pay extra for this paint peeling modification. Big Cry

I wonder if it is now reduced to one of these infamous "characteristics" that we have to pay so much extra for? 2015MY Corris Grey SDv6 HSE Dynamic, preceeded by a 2.7SE RRS, a 3.6TDv8 RRS, several FFRR's and 2 Evoques.

After 11,500 miles and the rear callipers are flaking. Have mentioned this to the dealers and they will look into it under warranty. Has anyone who has had callipers replaced noticed any improvements on the new ones?
