Alfa Romeo were the first the paint callipers and they were red. Anything else is just imitation.

Anodised look good for about a year then fade and splinter.

The only thing that should be yellow on a car is the rear plate, end of :)
Woteva! :lol2:

Have to agree that against the black bodywork that the red caliper looks better than the bright yellow. Against blue I wouldn’t be so sure, plus I wouldn’t go for such a bright yellow
Don’t listen to him, anyone can colour in on computers… case in point below, a picture of a man vandalising a Stradale, while wearing a hat coloured to match his favourite brake caliper colour.

Tasteless - considered to be lacking in aesthetic judgement. Lacking in style or good taste. Lacking delicacy, refinement and good breeding.

White on yours works well with the black body. My interior is Bianco pregiato so not sure it would work against Sof blue.
Some say I might be biased but it doesn’t get better than blu Sof with Bianco interior and yellow callipers. More than half the reason I had to buy my GT :D. I fall in love every single time I look at it.

on red vs yellow I’m firmly on the red side……but on blue yellow does look good. But then the Maserati yellow, think of originality and when you one day, god forbid, have to sell

You have your copyright documents in order yes. I must admit, his sig is starting to fade a bit now, work have all been briefed not to go near it with any cleaning products....instant dismissal

Couldn't you coat it with something?

The car is booked to have the calipers done in September, thanks for all the advice and guidance. I’ll post up pics once it’s done.
