    Caliper colour and which air filter for 58 plate mk5 sri

    Thinking of blue, orange or yellow for my brake calipers, just wondered your views, got a black mk5

    Also read a little bit bout cone vs panel filters, only ever dealt with cone filters, had a k&n on my mk4, would like to hear what people have and what would be best, especially from people with an sri!

    Would like a little more rumble but not too fussed about the noise, just to give it a bit more power, is it worth it? what dif does it make when sports button is pressed?

    cheers

    I'm all for yellow calipers mate. No expert on these lines but everytime i've viewed a car with a pal and its had a cone on i've been told that should be the first thing to get rid of. I would look at getting a K&N panel filter or similar

    panel filter i would say, keep the air box to create a good air flow, trouble with cones are they do not have a great deal of "fresh" air and tend to draw some heat in from the engine bay.

    as far as callipers, i would say orange
