looks good.. but it will look better once you got your 360s on ... i think the stock 18s cover up a lot of the calipers. you dont get a good view of it.

Looks pretty tasteful. Not as look-at-me as red or yellow, but will be noticed by other gearheads.

I wouldn't go yellow, at least not with the stock calipers. your car is SSII ? If so, I would probably do the same for your calipers - I had a lot of suggestions to go silver on my calipers, but I didn't think it would go with anything. But on a SSII, I think SSII calipers would look awesome (dont forget the M Decal, its what makes them look SICK!!!!

Oh for sure, theyre half done. I had a problem with the guy who was fixing them, so I picked them up on Friday and I took them elsewhere, so now they have to finish some sanding and re-clear them. Hopefully wont be more then a week ...I NEED THEM!!!

Thanks man, hows your car coming along?
I was considering the BBK too, I looked into it getting sponsored even but the prices are just ridiculous. They're nice and all, but so not worth 6k+. Its nuts to be honest! Oh well, Im happy now!!

Those were my exact thoughts while choosing colors. Red had too much controversy because of my interior being Fox Red (couldn't go a bright Brembo red because it would clash with my roof down)

Oh nice...But I would def go 20s.
theres another guy who also did 19s in 360 Forged Mesh 8, and these are wheels you want in 20s. Trust me - I know its only 1 inch, but an inch goes along way with these type of wheels!

heres his thread (scroll to the bottom of page 3 for pics, and read from there onwards)

nice!
Post pics of your calipers, I seriously considered red but had a hard time choosing which tone of red as my interior is Fox Red and my car is a convertible, so you do see the interior quite a bit!

They came out better then I thought they would

***For those wondering, the hole in the middle of the front caliper was covered with a vinyl (hopefully it will last). at first I didnt fill the hole with anything, and the ///M decal looked stupid over an open hole, so we put a clear vinyl and then painted over it. We will see how it holds up against the heat!
Where did you get the decals?
