    Hi everyone looking to get my alloys refurbished and I have been told I can have the alloys & calipers painted any colour free of charge. I have always thought silver alloys suit my silver CLK however I am now considering red calipers with black alloys? Or maybe silver/red calipers with silver alloys? Anyone got any ideas? I've tried to link a photo of my car below hopefully it works! My car is a silver clk with the AMG bumpers [​IMG]

    Personally I'd keep with silver for both calipers and wheels on your car, but red calipers at a push:D

    I'd go black wheels and red calipers, they'll look good on a silver car? but that's my personal preference

    I like the look of gold calipers.

    What about AMG Graphite with a polished lip for the AMGIII and red calipers?
