    Default Red or Black Calipers on red car?

    Have the white VAUXHALL decals for the calipers, but dont know which colour to paint them, red or black? red woudl stand out, black would be mroe subtle, im worried there might be too much red...what do you think?

    In that case, go for gloss black, but get silver decals instead

    My first choice would be blue, like on the VXR - I think red with the red car might be OTT.

    Agree, Gloss black will look good, and possibly look cleaner when dirty?
