    Rusty callipers

    So as some of you may have noticed that audi callipers are not the best when it comes to looking good due to the fact that they rust very easy so I painted mine black today but I'm not keen just wondering what you guys think is the best colour for a black car??? Post some pics of any that you have done to give me some inspiration.

    Progress is slow I'm afraid, they're getting a second coat of lacquer this evening and hopefully be fitted tomorrow evening. The brakes will need bedding in over a couple of hundred miles or so. Should be heading up to Newcastle this weekend so they should be fully bedded in by the time I get back on Sunday night.

    No, they are not.
    You can tell when its ceramic, the discs do not have the metal shine to it.. almost black.

    Just search for "brembo BBK Audi A4 B8" on Google or eBay.
    This is the 380MM kit, and they wil NOT fit With 18" Wheels, so i have 19" Winter and 20" summer Wheels.
    They are for the A4 B8, and fit straigth on. I installed them myself.
    I found these at Ebay.de for about £1600 second hand incl shipment (brand New) but expect to pay more.

    That is Bilstein PSS10, I got them from Germany at nh-tuning.de
    Also installed myself.

    I love this setup.

    They retail at £2700 so I think I was lucky on that one.
    He also included an extra set of brake pads.

    Here is a picture of the car.

    Nice like it, how come in the picture of the back there isn't a tow bar or I can't even see the point for a detachable one? I want a tow bar but don't want to be able to see the point where the bar attaches when it isn't on?

    The caractere Valance hides the tow bar very well.
    There IS a hole under there.. you just don’t see it like you would on the OEM Valance.

    I recomend the Westfalia Removable Towbar.
    You can see the backup camera, facelift LED i rear, Adaptive cruise controll, OEM A6 LED plates light.
    All retrofitted.

    Now for the Winter I have Defa Warm up with timer AND diesel heater.
    All retrofitted.

    Once you get started, its difficult to stop

    MTEC Discs + Mintex Pads + Painting Calipers [PICS]

    I sprayed and brushed mine about 2 weeks ago now. Came out pretty good. I bought some S4 caliper clips too (£90+ a pair) and had them shot blasted and powder coated in a high gloss black. Then went at them with some vinyl. Heres a few pics, the link to the original thread is above if anybody is interested.

    Shouldn't need to seal a high quality vinyl and I didn't want to ruin the powdercoat finish on the clips either. I can always take the off and replace them (don't cost much).

    Mate they look spot on, made my decision easier going with black for my S4 ones I have just got. With the logo did you buy the caliper springs or just put them the casing?
