I think it was Matt black in the first post.
That's the option id go for especially if I ever decided to paint brake callipers again. I'd get them powder coated no question.

So I finally got round to having a go at the tips. 3 coats of primer and 3 coats of matte black on top I don't think they come out too bad.

Never been a huge fan of black tips but I think they look pretty good actually, goes well with the black pack.

Standard defo! Black will just make them look dirty and sooty and make it look like you don't look after it! ;)

Defo making your S3 very stealthy, what with no S3 badge and black exhausts :ninja:

Good job you have a S3 only colour ... ;):D
