Wrong?..

Hi guys got my black guilietta collezione a week ago I am considering painting the calipers red. Is this wrong? Would it be even more wrong to put some brembo stickers on too?? It feels wrong typing it

People do all sorts of things to their cars to pretend they are something else or replicas.
IMO...Nothing to stop you doing that, providing that when you sell it, you don't let folk think they are Brembo's.

Mmm, saw a lad with red callipers and Brembo stickers on his old Puegout 206 (or something). You could see them clearly through the spokes of his cheap Halfords wheels. Looked err, lets say, what it was. You know what I mean?

I was gonna say exactly what he did - afterall even the Alfas that come with brembos fitted on them dont't have Brembo stickers.

Hey, it's your car so you can do whatever you like

But if you are asking for opinions:-

I think you should only go with what Alfa Romeo offer or do as standard

If they are Brembo calipers feel free to put Brembo stickers on, if not, then go for Alfa.
Putting a Brembo sticker on OEM calipers will mark you out as a onanist . The Alfa ones are cool in themselves.
