Hey guys, I've been vacillating over which color calipers to get for my silver/black Z8. Does anyone have pics of silver or black calipers or blue for that fact on a silver Z8 M5. I'm currently running 20" Radenergie wheels. Tanks Jonny

i'm thinking he's talking big brake kit, rather than painting calipers. Do a search here for big brake kits. Dave Zeckhausen recently posted some pics of red brembos and silver stoptechs. I have red stoptechs on my silver M5, i also have imola red interior and i like the match. I thought hard about silver calipers, but thought it would blend in with the car too much. To me, black just doesn't stand out.

Unless you are doing all 4 wheels, I would go for the low visibility.

Red BBK up front just screams puny brakes in back...

There is no one answer of course- it get wrapped up in what the overall look is you are going for.

I debated this one too. I went with silver to blend with the wheels, but black would have been pretty stealth too.

Do you have any photos of your car with the 20" wheels installed? That might help.

IMHO, a black low profile color would suit the beast best. Red screams look at me, and pull me over. But then again that might be what you looking for? :D

If you post a side picture of your car someone should be able to photoshop is each of the colors and the BBK for a comparison.

Hey Guys, Back in town now and appreciate all the advice. Unfortunately I'm no closer at this point. I was hoping someone had a silver car with black or silver BBK pic to post. Thanks again Jonny
