I was thinking blue because I like it and it goes with well with the roundel or red just because it's eye-catching. Glossy black would be cool but I just don't think you'd even notice it. I'm not even sure the blue would stand out enough.

Red

Red is sporty and is also noticable.

Uh huh. Definately red.

yes red, the only two colors you can color your calipers with is red or yellow, b/c they stand out and are bright, blue will get really dirty and dull over time and wotn even look that nice, red, is really bright, and even if it gets dirty it'll still be noticable

Stock brakes, paint them silver or black. Leave the Red/yellow for the real Brake upgrades (BBK).

^^^ I kind of agree, but on the other hand if someone will gain enjoyment out of their car from doing something to it, I say go for it. So I'm going for it. I'm doing it myself and I'll post some pics of the process and feedback on the stuff I use.

hey man, ive done this before, go to Napa/Autozone/AdvancedAutoParts(cant remember which one, go on S. Salina they are all next to each other) and buy a brake caliper painting kit, it comes with a spray, tis a primer and rust remove, buy a stainless steel brush, and that paint stays on forever.. .ive seen some ricers try to use spraypaint, seriously after a few weeks its gone
