    Painting brake calipers

    Anyone gave there's a lick of paint? If so what colour have you gone for? Pics?

    I got a black car so I was just thinking of painting them black or maybe silver just to tidy them up as I dont want it looking tacky

    Did mine in gloss black a few months ago. I wanted it to look OEM, like dad's S5.

    I went for what was advertised as metallic blue. But doesn't look very metallic to me. Will leave them for a while and see if they grow on me, but certainly not sure at the moment. If not might go black or silver
