    White or gray painted brake caliper?

    Hi guys! Today I made some detailing on my car and notice how ugly looks stock not painted brake calipers.

    I have A3 full S-Line candy white with sunroof and S6 rims painted in S-Line gray color.

    So now am wondering which color to use for calipers. I made some searches and notice that almost everyone are using RED, which I wouldn't like to do it on mine.

    Does anyone painted in White maybe? Probably would be bad for cleaning. maybe some pics?

    Same for S-Line gray, does anyone has some pics?

    Black looks nice as well but wont use it probably.

    Some other Ideas?

    Cheers

    I would like to see some picture first before am going to do it. Maybe Photoshop would be good idea first.
