    Hi all,

    I'm having my wheels re-painted next week and thought while the car is on the ramp with the wheels off I might as well get the calliper's re-painted. The callipers are Red at the moment but I'm thinking of having them painted the colour of the final edition model, I know mines not the final edition but I do like the colour they have painted the callipers, what's your thought on the colour, please see below pic, not the best but it gives you an idea....:thumb

    Cheers

    Hugh

    I hear what your saying @Topper Harley , I'm not 100% sure myself but thought I'd give it a go and see what the outcome is :wondering::wondering:, if I'm not happy then it will be back to the drawing board.. or do I just get them re-painted red ….:think::think::think::think::think:

    I had my old 4 post painted a fairly similar colour (Kawasaki green) and then changed to dog knob red brembos , personally I prefer red on mine but have a few red bits in the bay too

    Not that bothered about the FD colour anyhows but on a black car I think they would just look wrong

    Maybe RED as mentioned above if you want something 'different'

    Sticking with the black theme... callipers black with the STI text in the final edition colour or another colour but something to make it stand out

    just my thought

    So the car went into the paint shop today for the wheels to be re-painted as I wasn't happy with the finish on them. While the wheels were off I gave the calliper's a good clean and after your comments on here regarding the Final Edition colour, I have now decided to leave them as they are :thumb, so thanks for you honest opinions, much appreciated …...;);)

    My next dilemma guy's, I have the Prodrive GT2 alloys which have been painted black, I would like to put genuine Prodrive centre caps in, as the ones that are in at the moment aren't up to my standard's and are a cheap STI copy :rolleyes:. The only think is the Prodrive ones are Silver in colour and I'm not sure how the would look in black wheels :wondering::wondering: , what's your thoughts ?????? please see link below

    I've also found these OEM STI ones but unsure if they will fit ??, these are similar to the cheap copies I have at the moment , please see link below and a photo of my wheels
