Not sure if I like the red calipers. I think I'm going to do mine black, just to get them to look nice. Otherwise a great looking car!!!

Well not much to add here, I've put 600+ miles on the car since I got it and I'm averaging 26 MPG.

I'm leaving on a 12 day road trip on Monday, I'll see how well the SLE does then.

Not a fan of the red calipers but to each his own! :wink: Otherwise the SLE looks good. What percent tint did you go with?

Good luck on the road trip & have fun! Where are you going?

35% Front and 20% Rear (Idaho Legal)

I thought calipers were suppose to be RED

I got all my stangs painted that way too :)

Plain calipers are just so boring.

The GXP calipers came red. The rest of them came black AFAIK.

Planning on painting mine gold, so mine won't be plain either. :wink:

The pics probably don't do the brakes justice. The car is silver so I'm sure in person it looks a lot better. A lot of silver GXP's with red calipers and they look great (ok, so the GXP wheels are killer compared to 17" Torquestars).

Very nice! Haven't been a fan of painted calipers, but maybe I'll change my mind an see how my wife's car looks with them black. Hers is the same color as yours.
