Gp2 calipers on a white silver roadster

this is an odd question to ask.....

sillver jcw roadster, I have some bmw 135 msport/ Gp2 calipers almost ready to fit
i am so tempted to powder coat them BMW blue, the car will finish with blue bonnet stripes when I achieve close to 300 bhp
so in my mind blue calipers and stripes combo will work

Equally would you mix 3 colours at this stage, red silver and blue, to try to keep almost oem red calipers ?
I have changed my mind on this on almost a daily basis

I would do them red, but if you have a theme color for your car then go with that. Post up what they look like when they are done.

I like just two colors, blue and white go well together

I painted my regular "S" calipers blue on a blue car and they look great. I think what you're planning would look amazing.
