    Hi Guys.

    Bought some 345mm brakes but unsure of what colour to do them?

    I was thinking either LCR RED or S3 BLACK...

    ATM, Their R32 Blue:

    Black: [​IMG]

    PS. I will get the thing that says S3 on the brakes....

    PPS. I'm looking to get some black wheels with red in them for summer...

    Opnions will be greatly appreciated

    Go with something a little different as you have them off the car and can do anything you want..

    Silver or Yellow would look good..

    Jonny there's little different & then there's just plain ugly, yellow calipers, :puke2: its even more cheesy than red & tbh silver I'm not to sure would suit black car, but worth a try with Pshop

    Haha...Yellow :D

    I liketo be diff but i dont want to stand out like a sore thumb :p

    I had red on my Golf and it looked ok but they were only tiny calipers (or they looked tiny becuase the wheels were massive!)

    Im thinking black like most of you but red is still bugging me:

    Im thinking similar wheels in a few months (if i dont change my mind)

    Go for black. Classic colour for Audi's, looks smart and doesn't stick out like a sore thumb.
