    I dont know what colour to paint my calipers, the obvious choice is red, BUT, the colouring on the car will be black/dark gray and green, windows will be tinted and the side repeaters and brake lights will be smoked so red calipers might stand out like sore thumbs....... but If I do them boston green to match they won't show up at all.....

    any ideas people?
    Cheers, Jay

    I'd vote 'OEM' silver or black. No loud colors.

    Sticking with a clean, plain colour makes the car look functional and cared for.

    I'd only go for red, yellow etc if I had massive Brembo or AP calipers.

    that's what Im thinking, I'm gonna do the alloys anthacite so metalled dark gray so silver would look out of place so I rekon I'll just do em black, could anyone do a photoshop for me of a boston green coupe with red calipers and black wheels and with blakc calipers.... I just cant decide.
