Hey guys,

I'm looking at buying the Baer 6p brake setup. I'm undecided on what color would look best on my redfire cobra with true forged mach 5's.

Also those going with the 2-piece rotors up front, are you matching the rears?

I went nickle but have a black car.
I would say the fire red or nickle.

The copper is interesting any pictures on a red car

I always thought about the Arizona copper and think it would look good. But I haven't seen any with it.

So I'm learning towards something more neutral.

Are ypu doing 14 or 13 inch rotors?

I got the race rotor r spec
and it got surface rust quick. I would recommend the standard baer rotor.

I think you need the fire red to make your combo stick out more.

Neutral as in.......
I meant something more tame. It's just a hard decision for me.

I haven't decided 100% on 13" or 14" rotors. Are you recommending a 1 piece rotor?

Black. IMO painted calipers are in the same boat as chrome gas doors. They're necessary evils, not something to highlight. That said, my f'n Shelby has red calipers and a bright aluminum door. SMH. If it weren't a one of one car I'd change them.

The whole car is black and blue and they used a shiny aluminum gas cap!

I think the Arizona Copper has a similar appearing effect as the Redfire. It would be a nice look.

I like the Fire Red, but it's too bright for your car.

If I was going to do any shade of red it would have to exactly match Redfire. My vote is for either Graphite Grey or unpainted and have a shop PC them to match Redfire.
