any IB sedan (or coupe) with brembos?

did a search and only found a couple... is there a way to find more in the gallery or elsewhere?

trying to decide if red or another color would look better.

car that it will be going on:

I thought about that, but it will be too many "colors" in the car... Already it has a fox-red two-tone, so I was thinking of keeping it either red or blue calipers to keep the scheme more fluid....

interior:




that's why I thought Red or a custom Blue caliper would look better....yellow on this car, with the two-tone red interior, just wouldn't look good imo

With the interior I say keep it simple on the brakes. Interlagos would be very interesting. Also, choose your color based on the purpose of the car. For instance, if you participate in a lot of track events and are also pretty hard on the brakes you will notice substantial fading on the caliper. This is the case for standard reds, yellows, and lighter custom colors.

agreed.

That's why I'm leaning on perhaps a "fox red" custom, an interlagos color, or keep it good 'ol red.

I've talked to Ilia and couple of other of your colleagues, and they seem to think like you. Having said that, I'm not tracking the car like I wanted to originally, so I'm not too worried about the fading and such.

My biggest concern is too many colors... already the car is "exotic" as is

interlagos calipers may not be too bad....my only concern will be, it will be too "subtle"

car that it will be going on:

Gorgeous car--so clean. My IB E90 used to look like that--I need a detail!

I went with silver StopTechs on mine, but probably too subtle for you. Not a fan of the red calipers on blue car, but interlagos blue calipers would be nice--different and classy!

I think IB would be a bad idea. I say red (to match that interior) or something more subtle like silver. Any wheel plans?

It's hard to describe but I think an exact color match would look cheesy. If your competition wheels stay and you don't plan to paint or powder coat them black, I would say red is your best bet to go with that interior.
