Can anyone verify if this would work? I would like to use the 2014 rear red calipers on my 2013. Question is will it fit and secondly I see ECS sells the calipers and also the rear caliper carriers in red? Question on that is do I need new carriers or can I reuse the ones I have. Maybe the carriers are different on the newer year model.

Why don't you have your current one painted?

That's what I did and the results are pretty awesome

I want the RS logo plate to make the rear calipers look better.

That is a valid argument :)

I just came across the RS plates on ebay and it comes with small clamps. It also states it fits from 2010-2015 calipers?
Not sure how the clamps come into play.

^ a while back I asked Alex from Europrice if the RS plate could be ordered separately and he told me that the 2014-15 rear calipers were slightly different and the logo plate would not fit on the earlier designed rear calipers. Now that some time has gone by I wonder if this has panned out to be factual.

I just inquired about this. Alex told me no guarantee on fitment for the plates on 15s with the standard black painted calibers. Apparently the red ones are different mounting. Possibly could cutom fit. To much work imo.

The RS rear caliper plates are designed to work with the red calipers. These calipers have mounting holes in the caliper, which possibly could be replicated, however I'm not certain the shape of the caliper stayed the same.

If anyone is willing to try I do have a set of these plates in stock:

RS Rear Caliper Badge Plates – $150.00 pair

The other option is the red rear caliper. This can be fitted to any S5 or RS5 rear carrier, but if you wanted the matching color then the red carrier is available as well.

RS Rear Calipers (Red, w/ RS Badge Plate) - $998.00 pair
RS Rear Carriers (Red) - $498.00 pair

Cheers,
