    Red calipers - has anyone had this done?

    Hi guys

    I'm just curious if anyone here has had their calipers painted red and are able to post a few pictures to assist me.

    I have a black Arteon with the sound and style pack and I'm trying to find how the red calipers will look through the 20" Rosario wheels.

    Thanks guys

    Shane

    Probably not great IMO. They’re not a particularly attractive caliper.

    You'd be better off with a plastic caliper cover without a logo (or a VW logo).

    Quicker, easier, reversible, cheap

    The calipers on our cars have to be the worst calipers i've ever seen. Mine just look like a hunk of metal behind the alloys. Why didnt they put an R logo on them like the Golf R beats the hell out of me!! One of my gripes with the car!!!
