What color the interior? Can it be co-ordinated?

Otherwise go with red - matches the engine valve covers.

Interior is ivorio.

To tell you the truth my mind has been eqaully split up between red and yellow. Good point on the color of the valve covers ...red is now taking an edge, thanks for your input.

We'll hear what others have to say... hey... anybody out there with a nero body and yellow or red calipers that can post a picture for us??

if you can't decide, do Red on the Right side, and yellow and the left side. :p

YELLOW! for a black car in my opinion. Some of the racier Porsches now opt for yellow.

Red is also nice but looks better on Silver cars.

I have silver but would prefer Red. DIY job is too risky to mess up and dealer would charge too much and probably recommend full brakes overhall.

I am now trying to drive so fast that my cars calipers colour Redshifts from silver to yellow or perhaps red - depending upon which gear I select:D .

correct me if i m wrong, but the yellow calipers on porsches were used to signify their PCCB system. so these 'racier' porsches don't choose yellow calipers because they opt for yellow, they got yellow because they got carbon ceramic brakes.

why would anyone follow a porsche's style, when you don't even have ceramic brakes? that is not a reason to get yellow calipers.

if he likes yellow because it looks good, go for it.
but don't choose yellow because 'racier' porsches now opt for yellow.

Yeah, but they are talking colors like blue and orange and white. I mean black and orange???!!!! Not for me, that's for sure. I don't want to go into a rant about how Masers are better, or whatever, but I honestly don't get some of the recommended color combos on that forum, independent of car brand or model.
Black car, with black chrome wheels, with red calipers - Done. Darth Vader!!!

that was just an observation of another forum.
why i pointed it out was, they do not recommend yellow so that the guy wouldn't be accused of faking a PCCB system.

while we are on the subject, interestingly, stoptech does not recommend other colors for track use for their calipers:

http://www.stoptech.com/Products/img/StopTechAppGuide060107.pdf
page 12:
"For Track Use: Black is best, red is acceptable. Other caliper colors experience significant color change and are not recommended for track use."

i guess their blue/yellow/silver/gold boils off on track?

Yeah, I know - you let me use it on Wikipedia. That's why I marked it up so you could see your own calipers in red!

So, you made your decision yet?
