    Default Hi, I'm new

    Hi Everyone,

    I have been searching this website for a little while now leading up to my 3 MPS purchase and it has helped me a lot with a few things.

    I picked up my car last night and put my new wheels on and installed my neo audio iphone adapter.

    Now time to enjoy the ride.

    I will be painting the calipers.

    Any suggestions on color?

    Anything but red or anything close to red cause i don't think that will suit. I have seen cosmic blue cars with red calipers and it didn't appeal to me. I was thinking silver or seeing if i can find something close to the car color.

    How hard is it to paint the caliper ?

    Your wheels look great !

    What do you mean Cosmic and red doesn't work?

    You can buy brake cleaner and brake paint from any Super Theif, Autobarn or Repco.

    Try these items.
