Hi guys,
I am currently buying the Hoppers Stoppers brake upgrade for my XP Coupe.

I have been given the option of three colours of brake callipers.

RED
BLACK
SLIVER

What colour should I go with. The Car is bright Lime Green

My (personal) choice is silver - but you gotta do what YOU like! May be worthwhile to ask about the option of powdercoating for extra price - may increase your colour choice......

Re: Brake Calliper Colour for a XP Coupe.

Well i ended up going with silver after the some thought.

The other problem with red and black is they had PBR stamped on it. Which I did not like.

Now the fun begins. Installing the brake upgrade.

Gday mate, i dont want to hijack your thread but im from Werribee and i wasnt actually aware that Hoppers Stoppers did full brake upgrades. Do you know if they do them for AU's at all?

Re: Brake Calliper Colour for a XP Coupe.

Red would look great with the lime green car. Silver and black sound crap. By silver I think you mean VT/ AU standard calipers. The blue ones form the GT would look good. I am trying to get a set for my GXL. They have not replied to my last 3 emails. I will have to find a converient time to phone them.
What are you doing for rears? I am getting mine painted Red and silver to match the fronts. If I ever GET the fronts. Let us know if you have any trouble fitting them.
