    I have yellow calipers but I have a Noggy S3.

    I think red on black looks good.

    i like the look of silver, think they look fresh and stand out well, although the pics above look good in black.

    unless the brakes are something special, then they should be black. that's my personal thoughts on the matter.

    Even 312's on an A3 are still ugly single pot sliding iron calipers, so shouldn't be highlighted!

    what about brembo's?

    av just got mysef a set and wanting t refurb them before i fit them?
    and what colour woul you put your back calipers if you had red brembos on the front?

    am thinking making them all red to see what it looks like then changing the back black if need be
