    Would you paint your calipers?

    Am expecting a 3.2 A3 in March in Avus Silver.
    Dont know whether to paint the calipers or not. Hate to see rusty or scruffy calipers. The standard plating never seems very good some how. With a silver car wouldnt know if to paint them red or black. What do you think? It would be best to paint them while the car is new!

    go for black.. but do a good job of it.. as it can look worse if not done properly.

    imo if standard small callipers then paint black or silver etc and stick a audi rings sticker on it., if big brakes then red but YES paint them!-

    I wouldn't bother, just buy the brembo coloured brakes instead.

    Thats costs 800, and that makes sense doesn't it.

    When this costs 30 and looks just as good, when done proper.

    I'm quite happy with mine.

    My sentiments exactly! No offence steeve but I only have a 2.0 TDi and IMO painting the calipers would be rather camp. Chrome wing mirrors anyone?
