    I've put some new shoes on my avant and now the callipers are more noticeable than ever and it doesn't look good with them being rusty ! Has anyone got any photos of theirs resprayed ? Not sure what colour to have mine resprayed. Want them to look nice but don't want them to stand out too much.

    Excuse how dirty they are, it was raining yesterday !

    Thanks !

    Simple black is what I did mine. Hides 90% of the dirt and looks factory.

    I was thinking of doing it black, was told by someone to do it in silver as make it look nice but doesn't stand out too much, anyone done theirs in silver or could photoshop it for me so I could see what it looks like ?

    Thanks

    Looking good with the new wheels. 19s? I've got mine sprayed red but to be honest if I was to do it again I'd spray them black. Can't go wrong with black

    I would do a satin black. Hammerite is the best paint to go with. It does what it says on the tin. :)

    Silver does stand out as it's light , it's the next lightest colour to white .

    If you paint your average ugly calipers and back plates silver you will highlighting them which detracts attention and the clean simple look of attractive alloy wheels.

    Nice. Well personally I'll always say go for the sportlines as I love mine. Up to personal preference. A drop with those wheels will look good. Close the arch gap up and makes the car look more sporty

    Go black all day long looks cool hides the dust , just depends on the colour of your wheels as well as such its a personal choice its your car at the end of the day:blahblah1:
