    The brake upgrade kit is about to be produced for my Ibis White S3, eta @ 3 weeks.

    I need to decide which colour caliper/lettering to go for, initially I was all set to have Black Calipers with Yellow lettering as I thought these would be discreet and match the rear S3 brakes but now I'm undecided, there are some pics of their calipers on their website..

    Black Caliper - Yellow Lettering ?
    Red Caliper - White lettering ?

    Although it's a popular colour for calipers and something different is always nice, but on a white car it has to be red!

    AP Racing....has to be black and yellow lettering.

    Looks good,and stops good.....about time we saw a kit for the S3.

    Best brakes I've had on a car by a long way.

    id say black with yellow lettering! the yellow would look good with the white, and it will look discreet.
