get G2 - I know people may say its too expensive (blah, blah), but the way it'll come out makes up for it...

- mine's carbon blue and I chose the red paint kit

i forgot where i brought my brake paint but the important thing is that to let it dry completely. In time it will get faded away with all the dirt and dust covering it but its still a good appearance mod thumbsup

Red looks tacky against the blue in my opinion.

My car is Spectra Blue, I dont really like the red thumbsdown a lot of people do that...I was thinking Silver cause I'm going with a Blue and siver theme. A blue or even black would be nice. Maybe even yellow...

red calipers are good for black or carbon blue exteriors

I also have a blue/silver thing going. The reson I went with blue was to help tie in the wheel well area more with the rest of the car. If you go with silver brakes and silver wheels it will stand out too much, in my opinion.

black calipers will be unnoticeable and therefore defeat the purpose of painting them...
