Firesand with red calipers

Post by John007 » Thu Jun 13, 2019 12:25 pm

I have a Firesand Orange with red calipers but have been thinking of changing them, maybe to yellow. I just feel red clashes with the yellow. My growler on the front grill is a black one, not red. I would probably change the wheel centres to black too.

Mine is the first pic, but thinking yellow looks better?

Not sure it matters but the yellow calipers are normally associated with the Carbon Ceramic Brake option

Hi John,

It’s a beautiful car you have there,

It’s just down to personal taste, but if you’re going to do anything I’d get the callipers painted Firesand too, I bet Your dealer would be able to price it up in the paint shop,

Also yes Black wheel centres would finish it off nicely,

Kind regards,

I think the yellow clashes with Firesand as much as the red. Second vote for Firesand callipers. Or black. But it's your car, so your choice, of course.

Difficult one as I see your point on the red, but yellow clashes more
Black or silver do nothing, so I end with another vote for firesand
Spectacular looking car :)

My tuppence worth...

Go for firesand calipers and black centre caps on wheels.
Or maybe black calipers but with firesand decals to make them "pop" more.
Definitely don't go for a clashing colour like red or yellow.

I think the biggest difference between your pictures and the other car is the black trim parts. If I were to change anything, i'd go for them first.

I think blue would complement the firesand and better than any other colour but it’s your car so whatever you’re happy with will work! Orange is a mix of primary red and yellow, hence why they clash, with blue being the complimentary colour.

I don't think the yellow are bad - but red definitely doesn't suit.

Black would be ok IMO
