There's a few folks on here that painted their base model calipers red & turned out good, but if you plan on upgrading anywho it would just be a waste of time & effort IMO.

Thats an odd question. Brembo brakes will set you back 3 or 4 grand.
Painting your stockers is what? like 40 bucks?

yea, i guess i go for the paint.
but are afraid that its gnna look shitty.
Take your time, prep very thoroughly (sanding, tacking, taping), spray on a semi-warm day with little moisture & you should turn out fine. If you want to spend a little more you could have them powder coated & they would be a little more resistant to the heat in the braking system increasing the longevity of the finish.

I was thinking this myself.

Any ideas for a color OTHER than red? I like red calipers but I wanna avoid red cause its gonna look like I have Brembo envy.

I'm thinking of doing mine black, I'm not looking for them to stand out alot. Only reason I'm going to paint mine is because I used that Meguire's Hot Rims cleaner in the purple bottle and not thinking I sprayed it on the calipers as well. Hosed it off and now my calipers are a dull gray instead of silver. :(
