Yellow and red do not go together imo. It looks like McDonald's or ketchup and mustard. You either gotta go red or silver.

A yellow caliper would work with white silver black and especially blue.

Iíve seen yellow and I personally think it looks great BUT you could do a neon yellow. I would say just stick with Imola or Brembo Red... no doubt about it that itís going to look fantastic.

For real, I appreciate all the feedback as I know caliper painting threads come up multiple times. For those who have done it, post pics if you got em

Absolutely I painted my 763M wheels in the E90/92 ZCP 359M silver. My M4 is the first car that hasn't been red in 30 years but you're M3 is my standard colour preferences, love it

Are those the M2C brakes on the M4. Look much bigger than the standard M brakes

Got a chance to take some better quality photos. TAG actually was able to paint my interior dash trim stripe too. Overall super happy with their work and how it all came out

Love the wheels, lugs and calipers, but I think their is too much red in the interior for my taste. The stance of the car is perfect. What suspension do you have?
