Brake Calipers, which colour?


This pic above is how it looks now, One thing I really dislike is the standard AMG wheels come with a silver trim around the alloy, I'm going to get them refurbed all gloss black and thought about changing the calliper colour. With the wonders of Photoshop.

Which colour do you like best?

That looks like the Kawasaki Green - that's my choice - followed closely by the royal blue!

Red complements black paint. Best contrast! The other colours do not fit with the paintwork colour at all IMO.

Yellow for me without a doubt, apart from red, I don't think the other colours really suit a Merc.

Glad you all said yellow that was my first choice. I do like the blues as thats my fave colour but I agree with the above it kinda takes away the AMG look.
