Red or Blue?

Hey I did a photoshop of my current setup (stole great picture from EAS, I have the exact same modifications) to see what my car would look like with red or blue brake calipers. The blues not perfect as I would go for the m performance color.

Which do you like the best?

For a white car, red. It compliments the tail lights too.

Red as every other BMW seems to have the blue brakes, including mine 😀

Red if you want it to stand out more. Blues clean but very recessive.

Reality is they wouldn't be as bright as what you see in your photoshop.

The decision is 100% yours. Red looks much better.

Whatever decision you make, just enjoy the final results.

I like the BMW Blue and think it's special to BMW, where as every other Kia and typical "sporty" car has Red calipers so it's a little played out. You can't go wrong either way though. If I were to change mine, I would probably do Yellow or Acid green.
