    I would consider yellow as an option as well. Gives the car a nice contrast!

    How about a nice silver / gun metal colour something different which will still stand out, maybe get some S caliper decals.

    Black... no point doing red unless you have calipers you want people to see :blush:

    Cheers guys yes they’re 20 inch reps pal, the slightly more curved spoke version.
    That’s what I was thinking if I paint them red they stand out more and they’re not exactly brembo’s!!

    Mine is a 3.0 bitdi and the brake calipers are huge and I think they look good painted to start out but each to their own I suppose

    Asking myself the same questions at the minute, mine is Monza and wheels are like a gun metal colour with standard calipers.

    I do like how red looks but as you say they aren't brembos. Yellow I think would also look good but I can't decide!

    I'm tempted to get some coloured card I can cut to size and stick behind the wheels

    Did mine silver but when I haven't cleaned the car for a while and there is brake-dust build-up they go gun metal and look much better so would go dark grey metallic like if I was to do them again.

    I wanted the subtle look so went for Black with RS logos........I have RS 6pot calipers.
    Silver looks very much OE the same with a gunmetal colour.

    Personally think yellow I think looks naff and screams look at me I'm pretending I have ceramic brakes. Also looks terrible once they have brake dust on them.
    I think red looks good depending on car colour and can tie in nicely with the S4 and supercharge badges.
    What about a metallic Bronze colour?

    i like your black pal, im getting the wheels refurbed next year and think im gonna get them done in anthracite so black will be subtle and clean, wouldnt mind some small s line stickers though.
    are they off ebay and do they stick to the calipers ok

    Where did you get the calipers (or the covers) from in the first place 'cause they look great.
