Tuner 01 caliper covers

I was thinking of purchasing the Tuner 01 caliper covers for now until I get a bbk. What color would you guys recommend to go for my car, red or black?

I merged your two threads together instead of deleting one.

I'd go with Black BTW.

if you get the red ones, they will notice even more that you don't have bbk. do this for the stealth look ... and wait till you get your bbk.
