I dont know but I wouldnt break them.
Your title says "break caliper colour".
Not sure you can break the colour?
Haha ih yea, i was thinking in german when i wrote that♂️
I wanted yellow with my paint colour but went for red and really happy with them I think red or yellow would go well with carbon black. You could go really lary and maybe do a purple/blue as it’s kinda in the carbon black paint.
I was told that yellow calipers would fade more so I went for red but not sure if that’s correct or not
I think red can work on black - I went yellow on mine as I'm not a fan of red with blue, don't know why.
Honestly though on Black I think silver could work pretty nicely
Hi ,I just done mine gloss black same as the csl ,an put some M decals on them.Which was a lot easier than painting in the m emblem cast on the calipers ,which I wanted to do first .very subtle an wont put people off if I ever sell.
Blue would suit your blue car
Just re read what you wrote, are these just the standard calipers? If so I’d leave them as they are as
BMW Performance Orange
Standard calipers, keep them silver or black as painted standard calipers look a bit Barry?
Big brakes on a black car, Red
If You have a BBK than go for a nice red, but oem keep black ore silver
Mickya5. What decals did you use on your standard calipers ? Like you Ive tried to paint the casting but it didnt look very good.
Paint it in colour you prefer... Probably you have you own opinion...
U have bbk?
Yeah, had the k sport 8 pots then changed to a brembo bbk
Where did you get them? Can u send me a link please ?
this is the kit i bought
you need to buy the CSL discs yourself. morning they do a E9* kit too but I don’t know what included or involved in that.
also I run CSL reps and std 19’s and haven’t needed spacers but some people have depending on what wheels you have so best to check with them. mots not as hardcore as a true BBK but if your not a track slag it’s the perfect set up/go between in my opinion. I’m very happy
I have comp
i have competition csl 19 inch
