To be neutral. They have neutral people... you know.. the ones that put Silver car on the brochure and commercial.

Trying to mass appeal....

Which.. is wrong.. IMO*.

Jackstands. Remove wheels, bleed, remove caliper, clean, powder coat, reassemble.

They're not black...they are a metallic charcoal.

I think they look really nice and if they were painted a bright color, they'd look really small compared to the rims.

:( I was planning on painting mine orange to match the interior. Is it ricer? :(

I know, I know, do what makes ME happy but I don't know if it would look good. I thought it might look kinda cool on the black, with the orange engine cover, the orange leather and with the calipers orange. Nice distribution of the orange and that's it. Orange in the back with blacked out tails I decided against.

IMO they picked a caliper colour that wouldn't clash with any of the available paint colours.

In my opinion, that would be pretty cool. I had red calipers on my silver '98 SS and loved how they stood out a little bit. Just know going in that you're going to have to clean the calipers when you wash the car if you want them to look nice.
