I am thinking of getting my calipers painted in a week or two and was thinking which color, do you guys think, will suit Oreo?

A. RED(matches the taillights)







B. BLUE(for the hybrid theme)

I think the red gives it a good pop of color and pulls the red in from the tail lights. Going with blue, yellow or any other color would be too much other color (since you've got the red in the tail lights). White out may look good but I'll need to see a picture to be certain! ;)

Red is to common. I am partial to Blue or Yellow.
Yea, thats whats drawing me away from red!
:(

White 'em out!
Hmmm not sure! Not really a fan of anything white down there! Esp the wheels but I gotta see how white will look though! Only thing is I ordered white Akebono decals already and Indont wanna waste them! :(

I think I agree. IMHO, both the red and blue draw too much attention from the beauty of the car. Just my $.02
Hmmm...I see your point! They seem too bright to be hidden! Ill have to take that into consideration then! Thanks!

Mustard yellow.
Ill have to pass on yellow! That was the color of my oem brembos and wasnt really a fan of it!

Yea, out of nowhere color pop is certainly a factor I need to consider! Hmmm...if I go for red calipers, what color Akebono decals would be nice though? White or black?

Where will the Akebono decals go?? ON the calipers or elsewhere? I assumed the decal on the calipers (in white on the red ones in your picture) were part of the caliper but that may be where you are referring. If so, white looks good on the red in my opinion. Then you are just keeping with white (car/decal), red (taillights/caliper) and black (trim/grill). I think it would look sharp.

Ummm and red may be common, but there is NOTHING common about the Q50 nor what it will look like after you are done with it. Red is common because it looks so good! :cool:

I like the red too! Red, black, white - all the colors in the car.
Yea, i actually love the combo since it'll look good with whatever wheels I go for...i think!

Only downside is the too common part! :(

My motives here are selfish..... I wanted to see them in white so I could make a better decision. I was thinking of doing it, but wanted to see it first. lol

And you know if he does white, there will be some quality pics coming for me to see!
Darn it man! Stop making me you guinea pig!!! Hahahaha! :D

White on a GTR
Hmmm...ill probably pass on that! Kinda too close to the stock silver

White 458 with yellow calipers.
NOT a fan!! I think yellow makes people immediately think Ferrari! But I just don't think yellow is near as sexy as red. From a woman's perspective, red wins over yellow every time. ;) Red is the color of love, after all! :eek::p:eek:

I am thinking that the Blue would go well with the Hybrid theme. I like the red too and would be a hard to decision to make.
