Arrow Painted Brake Calipers - Photo Gallery

Hey Guys,
I figured since there are car color threads.. we should have a caliper thread:

Please post up photos of your painted calipers on your 3iS.
Would love to have visual ideas on which color I should go with on my Ultra White on Rioja Red.

Cherry or dark red with white decal to match both the interior and exterior colors

I am leaning towards bright red and white FSport decals.

This is the ONLY website that FSport decals can be purchased from.. I looked high and low:

Aren't the 250 calipers a bit too small to put something on it? That is how it appears to me but excuse me if I am wrong.

The front are big enough. The rear decals need to be smaller to fit.

IMO red with a white decal is going to stand out the most for calipers

my 3IS didnt have a 100 miles when I painted the calipers. Dont have any other pics right now but this dusty after tracking it



pics of the 2IS with painted calipers and F Sport wheels
