Yes, I can see they have some bling even from the camera phone pics.

We are going to be similar. I have 18/19 Nurburgrings with same size Bridgestone tires and the Crystal Red calipers. I am very envious of the LG Coils though.

I will report back in with the Crystal Red calipers on my Navy Blue Metallic. I'm a bit nervous that it won't be everything I expect but we shall see.

Here's how the caliper looks before install. I should be back with install pics this week. May be hard to tell from these small photos from the camera phone (I'm no James level photographer) but the color is C6 Crystal Red. The metallic really shows well. It actually looks close to the color of the stock rear side markers. I am hoping that this color meshes well with my Navy Blue Metallic. I was concerned that Torch Red wouldn't really fit Navy Blue Metallic, just two different styles. The Crystal Red seems like it is more along the same style. It actually looks a lot like Mag Red too. Not quite as dark as Anniv. Red.

Thanks olbear! I will try to install and do a little cleaning on the car this week and post pics. If I beat you to it then at least you will have an idea what they look like under Nurburgring wheels. I'm hoping to get a few pics posted by Sunday.

Got them on. Not bad. I'm pleased with it. It flows nicely bc it has a similar color style/tone as the nbm paint. It also matches the side markers pretty well. Not quite as much bling as I wanted. I was afraid to go torch red or yellow or zr1 candy blue because I thought those would be too much bling since they are different color style/tone than my body color.
