Heavily considering that shade of blue right now! It gives me a bit of colour, but also fairly subtle.

Any phootoshop experts wanna help me out ??

Not fully sold on them yet, but I usually take time to open up to new options.

you could just leave them black and have the lettering in white to give it a subtle pop.
Black is definitely my colour of choice, but then again I feel like it's not worth the investment leaving them black, I really could care less about the performance of a big brake kit on a 335 so it's all for the look. I'll get some heat for that statement but I don't really give a damn the stock brakes are fine for what this car should be used for.

What will you do with your Stock brakes?
I will probably sell my stock brakes and the BMW Performance big brake kit sometimes this fall or next spring.

Looks like everyone has slightly different taste haha. Maybe I should just buy a bunch of spray cans and spray each of my stock calipers a different colour and see which one I like best. If I like none I'll go back and buy 4 more colours till I find something I like haha.

Hahaha, haven't seen you around as much until recently!
Am I crazy to think that if I want to go with a vibrant colour scheme I MUST have black wheels?

Red always pops, but you're right everyone has it.

But then again, if you're interior is gonna be or is red then that makes the most sense.

Why not try a piano black with a hint of purple. It would be dead sexy in the light; your see a nice dark glossy purple and then a sexy glossy black away from the light.

^^this would add the sexy effect.

+1 for yellow (not tweety or big bird yellow), but slightly darker with some silver metallic effect.





Maybe grab the pantone colour wheel and find the exact shade and hue

Oh, I always thought since you are always changing parts and stuff and you sig says overhaul, that you were doing some big project to it.
Either way my vote is a dark blue especially if the car is silver.
And ya red is to common

This is a personal preference but I love the Monster Lime Green haha

With a Black car I think it would look even better.
