    Silver or black only

    Brake components are there to serve a purpose and NOT draw the eye away from more expensive mods on your car... Unless of course you are showing off a spanking huge set of brembos

    Some things should be left unseen and in my opinion brakes are one of them so as long as they are looking tidy then that is all good

    As above, red is for Brembo's. Go for black with nice, shiny new clips.

    I would go for silver as well to match the outside rim of your wheels.

    Blue red or yellow

    I like the more striking colours on brakes...They just seem to look better. I have mine red, behind anthracite wheels
