With your wheels (and the overall look of your car), I think silver would look the best.

Also, right or wrong, I tend to think that only big reds should be red. Where's that flame suit...

Stunning. Wish I had a Polar silver car now.

I think the Arctic silver is just different enough from the Polar silver that I will probably stick with red or silver.

Ed, it was great finally meeting you and Ruby at RRIV!
I traded out my stock brakes for Big Reds earlier this year HERE. They were a little tired so I refinished them in blue (I always loved Bradford's turbo!)
Here are the hightlights:

Thanks! I really love the way they came out. I painted them. The decals are from ebay. Shot them with high temp clear to finish them off.
Here they are in action:

Same here Darin! While I didn't look at your brakes, your car looked great!

What would you all think of silver calipers with a black 911 GTS with clear tail lights? Has anyone ever seen one?

The clear tail light option on a 991 was a bad idea IMO

How close is the factory red caliper paint to Guards Red?

I have been debating the caliper color too. I have a Polar Silver and am believing the slight blue in the color will work with with blue calipers and seat belts. If I had Artic Silver I would do red. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.
