    Hello everyone,

    Has anyone else with a Green S painted/wrapped the calipers?

    I like the look of the red on other cars, but I think it is too "christmas-y" for my taste on the green.

    Anyone have suggestions/pics/etc?

    Also, I'm in the Los Angeles area if anyone has a vendor they use for painting/wrapping. I am open to painting them myself as well.

    Thanks!

    is the caliper on the S85 the same as the Red P85 just with a different color? Otherwise it might look like those street racers that just spray paint regular break calipers to look like brembos

    You might consider black or silver calipers to match with a green car.

    Thank you for the responses.

    purplewalt: that gold/yellow/orange looks nice. I have regular 19" now, looking for other 19" aftermarket dark colors.

    Looks like I need to do some more research...

    Hi DieAbetic,

    You might consider these setups in a dark 19".

    I took a couple of pics of some gold/orange caliper variations @ yesterday's C&C in Plano.

    Good luck with your selection.
