Hello,

No am just going to leave it just as it is, love the auto box it’s great for the commute. If I want a manual one will just buy another for track fun, let’s face it they are not massive money to buy these days.

The bronze goes really well with the red, gunmetal would also be good but bronze is better.

Not 100% sure on it myself either @V8 Power.

They are pretty easy to change the colour of, though, so I think I'll wait until the full spray is done and then make my mind up. Not 100% sure what sort of colour would work with them... I'm not the kinda guy to shy away with a pair of black calipers, so perhaps something like silver?

You'd want something that contrasted with the bronze Dan. I don't think white would be amiss but obviously brake dust would make them grey most of the time. Black would look alright if it was also accented in some way with soul red or maybe bronze to match the wheels? Silver would possibly look really good kind of similar to white with less issue over the brake dust.

Not sure I'd want something so... intricate... for the brake calipers, personally. Something bold and contrasting is kinda what I like. Which I guess is why I like the yellow as it is - but do agree that it might be a bit much against Soul Red Crystal.

Other option could be a goldey colour. Takes some of the punch from the yellow, blends with the bronze wheels but also doesn't distract too much from the paint?
