Blue car with Red Accents. if it wasn't a company car you might have me contemplating Red Calipers

Garry, I'm surprised the company didn't go for the Red wheel caps as well!?
It's got to be lambo yellow for the calipers with that colour combo!? :lol:
i know what you mean ,i have got red calipers on the merc that i did myself quite easily but i dont know what Toyota would think if i got my spray can out
If it's actually your car (not company, PCP or motability) then they cant say anything! :shock:

I think they would have had to change the wheels for that - probably too much of an expense.

Also apologies I thought I had put the link to my picture in the post above they are in this post http://www.chrforums.uk/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=193&start=30#p1964
I have a dynamic in nebula blue with Matt black 18 inch wheels. I have the blue cross style hub caps. I think they look great but have to agree they would look much better if the callipers were coloured

I think you've given it an extra 5rwbhp with the red! :shock:
lol... i'll take 5 more liters in the tank :)
i just hate "bare" calipers...
So a Noob question here.. how hard is it to paint them?

That's right.

Here in Australia, we can order the caps on the Koba/Dynamic wheels, $22.20 each! They've alsp called the wheel design, Dynamic. A nod to you guys, no doubt :)

In my old yaris TSport, i used hammerite, took off one wheel, painted the caliper with a fine brush and repeat thats all. they lasted for 3 years without any problems.
only thing you need to do is not let it get wet when it's drying and at least 12 hours without driving.
Sounds simple enough

My vote is for Red ;)
These are the blue hub caps I mentioned earlier
