    My calipers are a sorry dirty mess, and a bit of an eyesore, so ive decided to give em a lick of paint. But cant decide what colour!!!!
    The car is a black sline saloon.
    Any suggestions on colour please guys?

    I thought silver, but i think it wont add anything to the appearance, would be too suttle,
    I thought bout blue , but dont know?

    That's why I thought about silver because it's subtle and looks standard and nothing flash or garish.

    Red is the best, it isn't garish behind the spokes of your Audi, trust me.

    Do you have standard silver RS6 alloys? It might sound weird but if you have after Market alloys or any wheels in black, try doing lime green or orange, can look pretty good but you have to pull it off just right.

    Ha ha don't worry Mike, some people don't always pick up on my sarcasm :)

    I've just painted the calipers black..... (on a black s-line)
    Looks alot better than standard rust!

    Thought the calipers on the back would look out of place if painted in any other.

    I did them silver today. Hammerite Smooth Silver I think it was. Also happens to be a good match for touching up my alloys where i've kerbed them.

    Excuse the car, it looks like I've been off-roading. I have.

    Pretty straight-forward. It took just over 2 hours I think. I even had time to wedge my finger between a wheel and calliper. It hurt like a motherf*cker.

    The aim was something subtle, not really to get them noticed as such, so I think it's worked well. I set out to get black, but changed my mind in Homebase and i'm glad I did.

    That silver painted ones look good. Either silver or black would be my personal choice.

    Could the calipers be polished down nice and shiney.
    If so, on any colour car, I think they would look good.
    Add 4 ring stickers and a lacquer.
    Just a thought.

    Mine are gloss black. Planning on fitting those heat proof stickers to the fronts of the Audi Rings just to add something a little different.
