    Silver on the callipers is the way forward.

    I used to use some uber high temp matt black rattle cans on the hubs and disk edges.
    Sort of thing you do engine blocks with. Looks great for ages.

    i think painted calipers are only good if your brakes are already massive, like m3 discs that are grooved and drilled, other wise i believe they are a little chav!, especially if you have red calipers and tiny discs

    I agree with RYM.... silver or black is the best colour to paint!
