Paint my brembo brake calipers white to match the body color? Or even a nice purple?




Edit a purple like this

If you really want to get it done, get it done right and get them powdercoated.

But honestly the factory Red Brembos look fine the way they are. If the paint job turns out ghetto it will look like one of them BBK wannabes out there, and the ironic part is you DO have big brakes.

I say do the purple. Although most of the cars I've seen locally that have re-powdercoated calipers have purple lol.... I may redo my yellow ones in the future with a different color...

Thanks for the input guys! I didn't realize a white caliper would show more dirt, which poses as a negative.

Red always works....on just about every color car red seems to stand out nicely. stick with it.

purple looks great! if you do it make sure to get it done right though or itll look pretty half assed
& only if you have a fair amount of other purple items on your car to collaborate.....BOV, WGA, etc

True... but you won't see those things unless you're parked with your hood up. I think it will look good on a white car.
I think will look OK on a white car, but I was thinking more of collaboration for shows etc.

If you drive the car hard enough, those red brembos will turn purple. Mine are already less red and more of a red/purple. :p

I have your same white car, man. I'm thinkin of powder coating the calipers too. I'm lame, though, and I'm in for gold or black. Gold will be a bitch, IMO. If you're headed for metallic silver wheels I'd go with purple, I guess. However, if the wheels will be any other color... stick with red, silver, or black. White car, black wheels, silver rotor, and a purple caliper all sounds a bit busy. Am I wrong?

White Calipers? They would look gray/dirty after 3-4 days. Do you really want to have to clean them that much?
