My F-Pace is Gibraltar specification, hence I have a 3.0 Diesel R Sport, this variation is not available in UK, R Sport is limited to 2.0 litre.

Red brake calipers are not available on the R Sport version! Crazy really, sport model no red calipers? My car having the larger engine comes as standard with the bigger calipers. I am considering the possibility of having them painted by a specialist company.

any thoughts?

It's a DIY job if you are a bit handy, there's lots of companies who sell heat resistant paint in spray cans.

Not the way I want to go. I have had a quote from a specialist firm in Nottingham that offers caliper removal, overnight storage of the vehicle, they strip the calipers, shotblast, remove all the rough surface until smooth and then paint to a top class finish. The cost just under £700, for all 4 calipers. They also offer a 4 year guarantee.

The only issue I am in Southern Spain!

The brake calipers on the F Pace look very small for the size of the car (even the 3.0L) and this is exaggerated when they are red. If the calipers were much bigger aka Porsche it would look much better!
