Hmm... that's a hard one. Definitely not the blue though. I'd go with either red or maybe a silver. Some black Brembos would look nice...

If you could find a blue to match the car it would look good, but it may be hard to find a close shade.

Re: brake caliper paint question

is your car BRIGHT blue or dark blue, atlantic blue is VERY bright.

discbrakesrus has some colors you can look though to get an idea~ i personally would upgrade to cobra brakes, costs 225 for the cailper 150 for rotors and 100 for brake lines and your done, GREAT improvment (but you have to have 17 inch rotors)

Re: brake caliper paint question

Hmm... I agree, that is a tough one. I'd prefer the red.... but that's me. I think it looks better when the calipers stand out compared to the paint and wheels. All depends on what look you're trying to go for.
