Is this seen as an ok thing to do to your car, or is it a bit naff, unless it was originaly painted?

Yeh it was either a choice of Green or Yellow for me. I chose yellow in the end, and i must say they compliment the car extremely well!

Has anyone used the Folia Tec stuff,..it comes in lots of colours and Awesome GTI are selling it.

Does the Jalpac come in a light blue ?

Before I do, I really should get some bigger wheels. I think painted calipers would look really awefull(buget) with 15"rims. Does anyone agree?

I bought some of the Folia tec stuff,without reading the instructions ( big mistake).You have to leave it to dry for 2 hours,before you put your wheels back on,then a further 24 hours before you drive the car.

I have just bought some of the Folia Tec caliper paint, ?22 from Halfords as oposed to the ?29.36 that Awesome wanted. I bought the Racing blue, similar to the R32 calipers, but I must admit, just seen a top pic of a stunning black golf on here with red calipers, thinking of taking it back and going for that instead. Anyone got any pics of an Indigo blue motor with racing blue calipers ??
