So I've seen dozens of pictures and videos of CCB's and I've never really seen ones as shiny as the ones that we have, normally they're rather dull and "matte" in finish.

Anyone ever seen them like this? Just a random thought I had after my car was detailed I noticed they're literal mirrors and I was just curious.

The surface texture on the Gen2 Brembo rotor is different than past CCBs. I wouldn't call mine shiny, but certainly look different from the Prosche PCCB or the C7Z CCB.

Did you verify your detailer knows the do's and don'ts of CCB cleaning?
 
This wasn't specifically after they detailed it. The CCB's have been like this since I bought the car. I'm at work but when I get home I'll take a picture of them. I've put over 2k miles on the car and they haven't changed how they look from the day I picked up the car at the dealership.
 
Took these in my garage so the lighting isn't the greatest but you can see what I mean about them being mirrors.

Just something I noticed because a simple google search doesn't return anything similar as far as how "shiny" they look. I don't know.

Have a 22 5bw with ceramics and it is impressive how great they look!

I also think that the almost 16" pizza sized diameter contributes to this look... or even more impressive with my Winters because I had to pick up a new set of wheels for a square set up... and the OZ's show them off even more.

Tried finding them for my Summers too, but they were out of stock for the staggered to fit the ps4 set up. I'm have to see if they came back in because they look even better in person!
