Hi to all on the forum. Am glad to be back with the blue oval. I have recently purchased a black mk7 fiesta zetec s (pictured). I would like to paint the calipers but cannot decide what colour scheme to go with. Just wondered what thoughts/opinions other people might have on this subject. Cheers. Dan.fiesta 2.JPG

Red, blue, yello lime green! (its a "personal taste" thing :) ) whatever color you go with it can look good if you match it to other things (stripes, accesories etc) - what color is the interior?

Hi FOCA. Interior is just normal plain shades of grey. Am liking the lime green idea :)  Was thinking of colour coding with the front fog light surrounds and possibly some gel overlay badges.

always white would look nice with the contrast of black car but i don't think they would stay white very long lol. There is a car on here with monster green and it looks really great. the guy also has dmb overlays monster badges for the center wheels.

 

As said above looks nice cause you match thing that are on the car =)

 I went for red brake calipers at the front and black drums at the rear. I have black alloys and it looks mint. 

 

On your car and with silver alloys i would say red calipers and black drums (same if you have black alloys)

 

If they were white id say electric blue or lime green calipers and black drums. (all personal opinions)

 

Good luck mate
