Black or Gold Calipers ???

I have Black wheels and the gold brembos, but Ive got some VHT Black and wondered if the gold looks a bit dated now?
So Black or Gold is the Poll really.

Black looks good if you get a brembo sticker for the face of the caliper.

Bright green works well on dark colour cars or even orange

Re: Black or Gold Calipers ???

just to add to this mix it does depend on car colour as well but my local powder coating company do a illuminous orange colour ( yes i cant spell illuminous lol ) and they charge about 25 for both calipers shot blasted and powder coated etc. looks stunning behind a black/anthracite wheel. I have a pick of my old redtop rocker cover that they powder coated this colour for me on www.j-auto.com and in project cars the select nova. My Pink calipers are going this colour very soon lol

This also means you can recondition your calipers as well as older imprezas are renound for siezed pistons as well.
