Meh...not for me personally. Red or Black are my two options!
Also, with the above white calipers - I think it would look a lot better if the sticker was clear, so it didnt have a black background. The stickers I have are clear background, so it will show the caliper color underneath the "M"

Thats impossible to happen. In order for the decals to flake off, the clearcoat will have to flake first, which won't happen unless the body shop is a noooby!

So I wouldn't worry about that, AT ALL!
