I'm gonna get my calipers painted soon. Just wondering on what colours people think would look good. I like red but it's a bit common, also I think white would look awesome and would blend on with all my other stuff (all interior lights, puddle lights, all interior will be white soon and also I've got the white dials), the big problem with white though would be keeping them clean so it's probably a big no. Any opinions would be good and I could do with a link to some? Cheers

That would certainly be a bit different just think it would stand out a little much

I'd go the blue martyntdci suggested - I was going to paint mine that colour but couldnt find it in a heatproof paint

Yellow look good, but hard to keep clean.
That blue looks nice, but will it stand out behind the dark arch?
I'm going the "common" route and going Brembo red.

Blue would definitely look good and then they're not red like all the others.

Forgot to say there is a dull yellow that is nice, not the canary bright yellow.

Yeah, I'll have a look. It does but your probably right enough, it won't really stand out at all. Red stands out a lot and won't be the hardest to keep clean so that'll be good

I also reckon yellow would look good.
Smother it in poorboys wheel sealant and rinse weekly I'm sure they'd stay sparkling
