Howdy,

I am the happy owner of a W212 - 2016 and I have a dilemma in choosing the colors / qualities of paint for painting the brake caliber by the color of the car (brown), here I need the help and experience of those who went through this dilemma.

Any opinion is welcome, especially if you have pictures.

Thank you in advance.

Welcome :) The world is your oyster when it comes to colour. Just make sure it's a decent job or it will look horrible. Had mine done by a professional paint shop who took the whole thing apart and prepaired it and finishefd it properly (I didn't trust my skills)!

Now that's not a good looking caliper , so you don't want to highlight it by going silver or a bright colour as the star of the show is the alloy wheels .

So Black Hammerite Smooth , not difficult to paint by hand .

When you have AMG or similar...

On an exact reverse I used to mange a police radio workshops including the fitting out of all police new police vehicle including surveillance vehicles.
Surveillance wanted fast cars that looked like normal cars, so cars like Skoda VRS & Seat Cupra R were favourite cars. But before issue we had to remove all marking & paint all the callipers black.
