    I'm thinking of painting my calipers yellow on my red 355. I have never seen a red 355 Berlinetta with yellow calipers. Maybe there is a good reason for that, ha! I don't have the scuderia shields on my car & maybe that is the only way I could pull off such a bold looking caliper. I would love to hear some opinions.

    I'd paint them red if i were you. I think the only way you could get away with yellow calipers on a red car is if you had shields on it, and or a yellow tach. Otherwise that's probably the reason you've never seen it before. :)

    My red 355 spider came stock w/ yellow calipers (and my Red TT Prrsche had yellow calipers stock). I personally like the look as it catches your eye.

    To each his own...

    I would LOVE to see some pictures. I have googled the color combo & came up with nothing as well as searching f-chat. It would be cool to see the color combo on other F-cars just to get an idea of how it would look.

    Most avoid Red/Yellow combinations to avoid the 'Ronald McDonald' comments. ;)

    I avoided red with my last yellow car and stuck with Black.

    IMO, I only think the yellow brakes would look good with the yellow shields. If you add shields, then I think it would look great!!! If no shields, well,.....add them.....
