Not a good idea...keep it real. Its one thing to retro-fit the real deal 'Big Reds' to an earlier 911 b/c you've built a hot rod 911 with big hp and NEED the extra brake. Thats cool. Its another thing to paint original small brakes to simulate (errrr pose as) larger brakes. Painted calipers and sewer pipe exhaust tips go hand in hand with rice rides. What's cool for ricers doesnt get it with 911's
You asked...I answered with my opinion... Its your car... and its right when you say it is.
