Im looking for a set of black calipers for my xB. I know I can paint mine, but I'd like a set that I can put on once I get my rims and lowering springs installed this spring. I also know I can buy a spare set and then paint them, but I'd rather find a set that come black, much like the TRDs come red. I've looked around and really cant find them, any help would be great.

Just paint yours. It will be much less of a headache in the long run. Not only would you have to physically locate calipers that were black and install them, you'd have to bleed your brakes as well. Most (if not all) OEM calipers come in a raw finish. I believe the TRD units are red because they're aluminum. I could be wrong, though.

It would be much easier to just paint yours. No point in purchasing aftermarket parts based solely on their color.

Just my opinion. ;)

Are you interested in a performance upgrade that has black calipers?
Or just the color?

Depends on the price really. I just dropped a bunch of loot on the new rims, so I'd like to just get what ever's cheaper, but a if I HAVE to get a performance upgrade to get the black calipers, I wouldnt be opposed to it.

Fast Scion sells these:

those are just for the fronts. you could always upgrade to vented/slotted rotors in the front and rear
