The time has come to have my Calipers re-manufactured upgrading to the Brembos for the front.

My only decision is colour and which works best with the Rubino Red. I am torn between standard Alfa Red and maybe Ferrari Yellow as they have use on the FF. This looks good with the darker wheel option which I have in the Pro Drives.

Votes please

Tempted with pink :biglaugh:

Yes I think Yellow would look amazing. I am clean freak so keeping them clean shouldn't be a challenge I just was sure if it was good taste in the Alfa world.

If you want them to stand out then it has to be the yellow, not sure if red would look right with the car being a darker different shade of red.

I saw some painted lime green at Autolusso, waiting to go on a red 159 (might have been a GT cant remember now) I didnt see the car after they were fitted but they looked amazing sat on the desk, if I were to do mine then lime green would look stunning with the carbonio black I have.

It all depends on the car it's color. I find the green very nice on wowie's car, but for yours i think i prefer yellow. I did mine in red because i didn't had the balls to experiment with another color.

Damn, I'm sad that I didn't do that on mine! Looks nice on a black car. I had my doubts to do them in gold like Brembo's are, but chooses red to be sure. Bad choice if I look at yours! Nice job.

Those yellow calipers look awesome, I'm very tempted, would go nicely with my KW coilovers too.
I just received some paint from here Red Brake Caliper Painting Kits. Professional Product.
They did take about a month to get me the paint, had to email them a couple of times to chase up. They do all sorts of colours too.

Burgundy car, I'd probably go gloss black or grey like AMG, if I was daring I'd go yellow. Def not red though.

Went yellow. They look amazeballs! Just need to fit them over the next week or so when I can get an afternoon to do it :)
