    My brake calipers are looking tired lads, dull and dirty, and are in some great need of a bit of TLC. At the moment funds are tight so there won't be any replacement only paint. The question is, do I paint them a subtle red or yellow or keep them silver? I do like the yellow calipers but not sure about painted ones? What do you thing guys? If any one has painted theirs please post pics

    As above, Black looks good, although i do like the lime green as the porsche 918 on a silver car.

    Good shouts lads. See I've got the same wheels as gixer, the rs4 18"s, stock colour on a black 2.0T and the red looks sweet! Tooty fruity, I do like the lime green on the porsche but will look a bit loud on my car for me and as for the black" think they're tidy also but only with the s-line decal. Do I need a special kinda paint?

    yellow on a black car is a good choice.
