thanks buddy, gave it a looooot of thought and decided to keep them grey as they look best in grey behind the matt black rims ,don't wanna go into colors as my car is in stealth mode and glossy black won't look nice with matt black rims.

I was gonna say the same thing about painting the calipers, until I realized that you would just need to paint them matte gray, which they already are haha

rotors look amazing brotha !!! great choice if I ever stop spending all my money on the bike I plan on getting the same rotors you got, they make such a huge difference in looks and I'm sure in breaking power as well !

thanks Leo, yesterday i went for a ride to try them out and did a couple of medium hard braking i heard some sqeeking noise while braking and after that saw some white smoke coming from the calipers guess they're still new need to drive around for a while before i try them out but i really hope the squeeking goes away too

Id give em a few days before investigating whether or not something is up. Grease, brake fluid on the rotors, if you got new pads, etc.

I always had a smell for a day or two when I changed rotors and pads on my past cars
