View Full Version : to paint or polish?

I don't like the black on my new porsche calipers and don't want to be like everyone else with the red calipers.

What do you guys think would look better? If I painted them blue with the white porsche logo or If I polished them and machined the porsche logo into them?.

Please no more blue!

I vote for polished ..it would match your other work the best

I agree, polished & machined the logo is definitely different

sorry... but I would love to see them red with your car's colour:(
and if you polish them, how long do you think that shine is going to last?

Porsche brakes should be red with the white logo... just looks much nicer imho. No blue, PLEASE! And actually white calipers looks really good if you put Porsche in black on it. I've only seen it done once.. but it looks really good.

Thanks for the input guys, for those of you saying "go red" , I refuse to be like everyone else, I like doing things that are original. Ever see a polished porsche caliper on a bmw?

As for keeping it clean, I polish my splitter once a year and thats it so same would go for the calipers, regular washes keep it clean enough.
