Red paint & a Brembo sticker will make you stop faster. I don't know 'bout blue. Yellow paint on the new CTS-V's make them stop faster thou.

I'm not sure this is a Performance topic. Probably the wrong sub-forum.
IMO I do not care for wild-colored calipers or colored wheel lips for that matter.

My Subi's STI's brakes are black and they will stay that way but the red works on my focus in part since it's already red.
