    Hello, All! Would like to hear your oppinion. I am planning to paint calipers but not sure what colour. I fancy doing them Yellow like i had on my Alpina B10, but my mate recons Red is better. Car is Grey colour, what you think is best?

    Black

    Or if you must go for a colour out of those two: yellow. My Clubsport had red calipers from the factory so I got away with that but otherwise red is overdone.

    Green looked good on my old Skud

    Thanks, this is what i think Red- overdone. I fansy to stick to Yellow. Also i am in two thoughts what should i do. I want to put Alpina Softline 18" Alloys which i kept from my old B10 Alpina, but not sure if it will look good, M Sport with Alpina Alloys and Yellow calipers?

    Also a vote for black. Any bright colour (such as red or yellow) just has them looking dirty from brake dust and road grime in no time

    I agree they get dirty fast, but its easy enough to clean them when just washing the wheels, as i can reach them through the spokes. Thanks for input tho

    Red is for Italian cars! Not sure yellow would look right on an E60, so black or silver would be my vote

    I say black 'cus that's the colour I did the calipers on my old mk2 Golf when I upgraded them. Silver might look cool though?

    Think the red or yellow would cheapen the look of the car :(
