    Hi, I'm going to paint the calipers on my A4 tomorrow (Black S-Line Avant)

    I've got some S-line decals to stick on them, but I'm in two minds what colour to do.. What do you all reckon Red or Black. :uhm:

    I would go black. I think red would look really good, but I find it draws attention to the calipers, which is ok for the big front ones, but not so good on the little rear ones!

    Red if you can get some S4 calipers on there but for standard fronts I'd go black or silver.
