    Well i chose yellow to be different... and i think it looks good, others might not! Red is the safe option, but a little boring now.

    I'd go for Silver to give it the 'chrome' effect. Black and Silver IMHO looks the business.

    Although you might find it a pain to keep them clean in sliver/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif

    agree on Red being boring but its safe

    the Yellow from stoptech is rather.... ****

    Silver, having a good think. This eliminates me having ot paint the rears to red as well (GAY) in my opinion

    Red is nice. It will fit your car perfectly. Silver is so plain IMO. So red is my choice.

    I'd go for silver if I upgraded the brakes on my Ming Blue S3.

    Well, if they are cast holes, then go for that. If you are tracking the car hard, I heard non cast holes crack easily (RS6/RS4/S3 in particular)

    Else, I'd just get plain discs. Slotted make noise apparently.

    MingBluS3 - They are Porsche Cayenne 6 pots. I paid £300 for them, this is from a friend in Germany though.

    HTC - Thank's mate, I did indeed /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Check them out next to a 13" wheel:
