    Glynn,

    If you are still not sure try what Andy did. Paint some cards in different colours in roughly the same shape and size of the calipers and then stick them behind the wheels. Gives a really good idea of what they would be like on your own car.

    I tried them on mine and it does work.

    Shouldn't take long to establish that yours should be blue though.
