Hi Everyone,

I am aware that this look is a classic and has been done before however when searching i still did not find the best representation and took a leap of faith in doing so.

I can safely say that it's a winner :grin2::grin2::grin2::grin2:

I will let you be the judge

As the old fashion industry saying goes -- if you are wearing more than 3 different colours, then it's probably too many.

Black calipers, to tone it down a bit, might be a good move.

I'm working on the reflectors but can't do much for the callipers(block or red would work better i know :wink2:). This look is a bit too much for most i agree but the result when you see it with your eyes works.

I always wanted gold wheels on red and black roof.

Fair enough.

A good detailer should be able to repaint and re-decal the calipers to black, fairly easily, for about US$200-300.

They even have high temp vinyl and can wrap calipers. Cheaper than getting them repainted, and it's not permanent.

Thanks a lot but The current setup is more of a temporary one as I'm changing the wheels soon. dunno if i'm staying gold or not but i so far i'm in love with them.

It's not for everyone for sure and it's even more "look at me" however i don't believe it's bling gold and whacky like the picture posted above.

coool love it. What color did you choose for the rims?
It's actually spray on vinyl from dipyourcar.com (vintage gold), mix with some brake dust :)


Held up wheel, track day heat, easy to clean with Brake Dust Pro


Now it's in storage since I got the new wheels. But they can be peeled out easily as well if the future

I am fan of the gold wheels on an Alfa or Ferrari GT car. Nostalgic. I would go for a touch darker tone with of gold, but there must be some reference codes for what Alfa and Ferrari used in the 60's and 70's.

Overall I like it, but after reviewing the comments and going back to the photos, I think the calipers in red or black would be a good improvement. I used to have gold wheels on a different car, and like that classic look. I was emulating the WRX color scheme here.

I like the gold wheels, I wish I had them on my car. Reminiscent of the 60's Ferrari sports race cars. I love that look.
