    Hello

    Thinking of painting calipers on my silver s4. What is the best colour and what paint would be the best to use.

    Thanks

    I have always used Hammerite with good effect. Hard wearing and easy to apply.

    There are "special" brake caliper paints that are higher temp, but if you are never going to track her, hammerite will suffice

    I prefer more subtle, so would do silver or black, but white might work.
