Go yellow, just to be different. Mine isn't QV but went yellow on dark wheels just for the same reason. Red is too common. :rambo:

I think yellow looks great as they give a good contrast. Only issue is that it's the colour that Porsche uses for carbon ceramic brakes which could be viewed as a bit tragic when you have steel brakes. Weirdly yellow is £100 cheaper than red.

I was in the dealership today and couldn't help notice a wall of painted callipers within the 4c enclosure. The Yellow option looked quite golden rather than a full on bright yellow.

Is this the same finish that the QV callipers will have? I personally liked the finish a lot

You're ordering 75k's worth of car. Unless you're colour blind you should be capable of making your own mind up as someone who's (presumably) earned the privilege. :banghead:

Just a friendly thread to encourage some opinion sharing!

(Presumably) you are aware that a fully specced QV is not £75k

Red calipers on the nearside and yellow calipers on the offside.

It's all about compromise. :lol:

In my humble opinion competizione red and yellow calipers doesnt fit well. Alfa rosso with yellow calipers maybe better, but for COmpetizione red you need either black calipers or red.

It was near enough when I specced one out of interest.

The red callipers won't match and the yellow callipers will clash. Black is the only sensible choice.

Agree, I went with black with the black wheels, not too flash and more practical from a brake dust visibility perspective. Yellow is just trying too hard. Standard Giulias have silver which also looks good with silver wheels.

Its an Alfa, its designed not to blend in. Be bold and let it clash I'd say, seriously!:rotate:

I went through this back and forth. Yellow is commonly indicating carbon brakes. if you are going CCB then yellow might work otherwise IMO red is the best :)

Go yellow (I did, but mine's a black car), I don't think it clashes with the red, it just provides contrast that will look great.
