Def not yellow & red is becoming all to common, how about black as per S3's, some have powder coated with great results

Nice one matey

if my car was your colour - Id be tempted to spray them in the same colour (grey)

I did do mine black to matchthe car but the calipers were a diff kind of black to the car and it looked all wrong imo.

All well - I'll redo them in the summer with the new wheels on kit! lol

Is your car flat silver? If so i'd go for gunmetal grey personally.
Mine's avus silver and can look a dull titanium grey or a purple tint in some light so i wanted the calipers to lift the car, give it a sporty appearance and contrast with the paint. So i went for red. Yes, it's a common colour but the fact is if it looks good, it just does. Common or not.

It also matches with the red in the S-Line badges so continues the theme. Adds a nice touch i think. This is a quick snap of the rear caliper. It's taken at dusk so the red looks a lot brighter than it really is!
If you like i'll get a photo of the front calipers too.

By the way... I used the Foliatec Rosso Red kit. You mix the colour and hardener, leave for 15 mins then paint on. Gives a rock hard, glossy finish. They do all the colours and it's easy to find online. Definitely the best product.

I dont have a clue yet - probs stick with the Rs4s till summer but i was thinking the 5 spoke project kahns RSC2 in Black with a chrome lip or BBS CK or CKIIs or some Porsche Cargraphics (they cost 2k lol) but a dont know for now.

I like my Rs4s - i would have kept them if they were 19s..

Those Team Dynamics Mesh look good - look similar to the rivieras on ebay! They look sweet too! Not too sure about the savages tbh :S

If you really want some decals i'd see if you can get some with just the 'S' symbol on them.

Like so:
