    What do people think of this mod? Is it a bit boy racer! I seen a B6 yesterday with the new b7 RS4 alloys fitted and it looked great. The owner had the calipers painted red and I must say the whole package looked great. So has anyone ever done this themselves and what paint did they use? I imagine the standard aerosal can you buy off the shelf would not cope with the high temperatures in this area. So can you reccomend a paint and a how to step by step.
    Thanks

    Nice one lad's, going to pop up to B&Q and pick a nice can of red and some masking tap and have a go. Do I need any special cleaning agent to remove the **** of the calipers as they are the originals I will be spraying.
