    I'd probably go with black on that colour mate to avoid a clash. Silver would probably go fine too.

    Subtle: black or silver
    Statement: red

    If I had Brembos I would still paint them black... but thats just me :)

    I have abefore and after pic but its on my camera at home at the moment, I'll try and upload it later. I had to rush the job a little as the preperation work took so long. When I get a bit more time I want to give them another coat of paint and put the Audi logo decals on.

    If you're planing on doing it I'd suggest giving yourself the whole day. The job would be a lot easier if you could bleed your brakes and remove the entire caliper but that's not always easy!

    Red is the only way to go in my opinion. The new Mk5 GTI's are all red calipers...

    Will be getting the brembo's in silver I think. Red standard out too much against the silver.

    Looks half decent on the blue though.

    red calipers on blue car and dark wheels look good.

    however, i personally would go for black or silver

    WHOOPS.. just slipped. Anyway, As i was going to say, I'v always found red to be my favourite. But depends on the alloys... Here's a pic of my A3 1.8t With 312mm S3 Brakes and new alloys

    Matt Black on std brakes as they are nothing to shout bout generally.If i had HUUGGEE Brakes probably still have black for the stealthy look. Though Kingfisher Blue isnt exactly stealthy its one of my fav colous ever
