    I was originally going to paint my calipers the traditional red with silver TESLA text on a black car, then spied one of Al & Ed's cars where they left the calipers black but painted the letters red -- looks pretty good, classy and understated:

    I like the Black with red letters but I will be going with a little more color, so I'm picking the red caliper with silver. To spice things up, I am going with reflective lettering just for an additional pop. I considered going with wrapping the calipers in a reflective red but I don't want to look like a boy racer too much. I'm getting mine done this June, good luck in your choice, I'm sure you will love it regardless.
