ooo i have lemans too! I think it also depends what color wheels/interior/grilles/etc you have... if you have black grills and powdercoated wheels then black would look sharp. pics please when you decide!

Black everything would look stupid

I say get a custom color, you need some contrast. The colors available wont look right unless you go bold and do a yellow

hey man different strokes for different folks... it was a suggestion... not seeing it on the car makes it a little more difficult so if you want to go photoshop it for me so i can decide if it looks as stupid as you claim please do.

I ordered them for my LMB in yellow. Someone else had silver, and those were very nice too. I'd show you the yellow on LMB, but my car isn't here yet.

The silver looked pretty good, a bit understated when compared to yellow, if you're not looking to be TOO flashy. I picked yellow because I like yellow calipers, but I mean, if your car will see track duty like mine, eventually with painted calipers, the paint is going to go to h3||.

Those above IND calipers...DAMN those look sexy.

i like the idea of color matching the paint to your car color and maybe put the brembo lettering in silver or do it in a yellor or red or green

Really low key: Black
Subtle: Silver
Extreme: Yellow
Or have IND paint them for $650 any color you want. They just did some in Inka orange for me and they look 100% factory done.

I would keep it subtle and go with either black or silver. Personally bright colored calipers just makes it look like one of those cars that spray paint the calipers just to call attention to it. Paint matching to LMB might not be so bad since LMB is a dark color it won't stand out too much.

You should definitely go custom. A contrasting color would be best IMO. A lime-yellow, bright burnt orange or even a gold would be cool! Have fun with it and you can always change it up down the road!

Silver would be classy when contrasting against the LMB and the Graphite Grey wheels (or are those changing?). Other than that I'd be tempted to go with yellow which admittidly would get a bit of attention.
