Nate,

Any more pics of two tone schemes like this? Can the accent color be seen when the wheel is installed?

Hello Frank,

Are you referring to the yellow portion of the brake setup? Those are performance brake pads from Pagid. Pagid has various colors of brake pads to help differentiate between the different pad compounds available for quick reference during pad changes. The brake kit you see in this photo has Pagid RS29 compound pads installed.

Typically you won't see much of the pad once the wheel is installed. Here is a shot for your reference:



Thanks,

Ilia

Thanks Ilia! I'm absorbing info on different options now. Will be in touch in the spring to do something nice before summer.

What would be a good color with SSII (other than black)? Thinking about giving a little pop to the wheel well once it is time for new breaks...

Sorry saw the AW M in your sig

It might sound boring but I would go gloss black on the calipers with Santorini Blue. Nice and clean.

If I didn't already have gloss black Brembos on my E36 M3 I would!

Hi Nate - how much for this setup shipped to 27284? Was thinking about 365/345 rotor size.

Thanks,
Barry

What color Brembo would you guys recommend for a Sparkling Graphite (w/silver ZCP wheels)? The damn car has purplish hues that are hard to accent.
