It's a pet hate of mine. Nice shiny clean wheels and rusty brakes just play havoc with my ocd Mr. Green Paul

Mine also have the stock kind of pot metal silver look and look a little long in the tooth.

Really like this color silver on them. So no lacquer overtop of the brembo logo for extra protection?

I don't have a power bleeder...instead Ive used BMW INSTA and INPA when doing my M5....works fantastic as it bleeds them through the computer. The stories about not getting a successful bleed or de-laminating the lines has pushed me away from the manual method......then again maybe the RR is a very easy/more forgiving bleed. 2014 FF Autobiography 5.0 SC

No, I didn't bother with a clear coat over the top, horse. I did think about it, but I've read on other forums where people haven't and the stickers have been fine for years after. Plus, I wasn't able to buy a high temperature lacquer locally to me at the time, so I didn't bother.

I've always bled brakes the traditional way (ie. wife's foot on the pedal), but I got too many complaints of aching feet Rolling Eyes So, I now use a Sealey VS820 pressure bleeder and it works really well on the L405. I pumped up to 20psi, from memory. Kev

He's UK based but I'm sure there are plenty available stateside too.
