Black Brembos or Red Brembos?

Can't decide if I want to go with black Brembos or red Brembos on the car. What do you think would look best?

Are you going for an all black theme? Could look good. I don't recall seeing anyone do black brembos, though I could be mistaken.

Lot's of choices, but with your setup I'd personally go with gold with black Brembo decals.

Red is going to stick out too much, keep them black and let the rotors do the talking

Depends what kind of theme you are going for.

Overall it looks like black will be more subtle with the car and wheels colour.

I think black callipers will be good and bronze lettering.

I originally thought red would be consistent with the theme of the car because the FR-S has red stitching and red lights throughout the interior. If the wheels were silver I would definitely go red. But with the bronze wheels, I am starting to lean towards black.

I have red calipers (not brembo) on my Grey Asphalt Fr-S with black and white wheels. I think the red is great cause the car is mostly dark and it creats an highlight. It's the reason I still have orange sidemarkers too. But in your case, with the bronze wheel I would go with black. Both would be great anyway, good looking car buddy!

Red calipers with bronze wheels on a black car is a classic look. Would look similar to this:

Red calipers will not include an ls swap, don't be fooled

With brembos red can work. Standard calipers to me are ugly.


I prefer the calipers to be understanded. Not really interested in a caliper catching my eye.

My base calipers are black.

I'm personally a fan of red when it comes to Brembos. Or other colors depending on the car. Yellow some stock on a few different cars, Gold on STIs, even light green on some.


Black is ok too, but on a black car, you end up not seeing them at all. If they're just regular calipers, it's black all the way for me, but with larger ones, I prefer a different color.
