I have the Brembo 4 Pot setup on the front, with red calipers. I quite fancy getting the rears done to match (as small as they are) it will look a bit more even.

Will this look better or will it draw attention to the rear calipers making them look even smaller compared with the front? :-D

Do you guys paint your rear carriers as well or not?

Cheers.

Hi Hollow' I have just fitted a Brembo GT kit too and Im planning to paint my rear calipers too.I have seen a few and they look OK its a pity the rear disks are so small as well but rears look fine when you paint them.

Cheers guys, I'll get on it after my holiday.

So leaving the carriers unpainted won't make much difference to the appearance then?

What's the best colour red to use which will match the brembo red?

I got quoted 80 quid plus VAT for a garage to do the rear calipers. Needles to say I would rather DIY.

Best paint and best match by far is Japlac red used it on the qS and they match the front Brembos perfectly
