think im gona do it, im feeling a simple DIY mod. i don't really feel like doing them red on stock brakes. Just to give it a little look and to take care of some of the rust. how do you think that would look on my silver A4 behind some Anthracite Flik Arctics? possilby even some small decals on the front calipers, nothing chessy though.

yeh you know i went and looked at the high temp paints in spray cans and just sparyed it into somthing and used paint brush. i didnt even take my wheels off when i did it. i did them black. i am thinking about doing it silver possibly. my car is white. i would do them white if they wouldnt get so dirty. but yeh def an easy diy mod. btw high temp paint at wal mart costs like 3.25$

Silver is a great choice for the way your car is right now.

i think red is where its at.


adds some flare to a car. even if it is the stock caliper.


im gonna do mine when i get my a8 rotors, but im gonna paint the pad holders black, thinking of getting a white audi decal to put on them, just so it doesnt look so cheap.

How hard is it to clean the calipers? On the race cars it's easy - the wheels are always off, but I don't want to take my wheels off every time I want to clean my damn calipers..that would lick it

it all depends on how clean you want them

any degreaser spray and some water can clean them. brake cleaner works to, but youll need to rinse good. if you want get a small scrub brush to fit inside your wheel.

i just take mine off, but i do it at work, so its kinda a 5 min job [:D]

either that guy was way to lazy to tap it up, or he just didn't have a clue.
