Hey guys I just got a 2012 White Diamond CTS-V last week. I have the silver brake calipers but want to get them painted. I'm not sure what color I want to paint them. I would appreciate some pics.

Thanks guys. I saw the pics of the white one with white calipers and it looks great but it probably gets too dirty. I really like the yellow so might just go with yellow. Lol keithsm2 I'm contemplating on doing mine deep metallic blue like the zr1 but I just don't think they will come out the same and it might look cheap. I'll post pics when I get mine done.

it's not horrible unless you're going to daily drive it. With cheap ceramic pads I think it starts to 'dust' the calipers after 2-3 weekends of use. Stock brembos or some Hawk 30s, yes, they'll get dirty quick. Anything will.

I know I've seen someone try to do this. I can't remember how it turned out though.
