    Hi guys.

    Im really really really stuck on my caliper colour and desperatly need help (AGAIN).

    I want to do them red as I'm planning to get some black wheels with a red pinstrip to give this kind of look:

    I was considering black calipers but with black wheels, you cant seem them at all (as the black BMW demonstrates).

    I dont want to stick out like a soar whumb but i dont want my brakes to NOT be noticeable either....

    Does anyone share my opnion that with Red brakes covered with black bbs design alloys with a red pinstripe would look good and not boy racierish?

    Cheers guys

    im not a fan on the red calipers as they are now a little boyracer BUT the red / black /red combination like the m3 pictured does look smart and i would consider it.

    I think red looks good on a sporty car,

    Some cars can even pull off yellow :)

    As hinted at above, there aren't many easier jobs than painting calipers.
    Wheel off, wire brush the worst of the **** off and brush on paint.
    An anally-retentive perfectionist might want them bead blasted first, or something, but that's just mental.
    Who the feck could be bothered with that.:tocktock:

    Probably somebody who is anally retentive LOL

    You may want to do the discs silver too while the wheels are off to hide the bit that rusts.

    I think he may be refering to the hub part of the disc and not the friction surface!
