One thing for sure I will be going with what ever color best suits blue if I don't already want a nitrous blue exterior

I think the nitrous blue calipers will still look good on a Black or White RS. Not sure if I like the calipers the same color as the car. It's just too much going on for me.

Oh how I hope this turns buyers off.

Simple fact, it will complete the journey to irrelevancy. "I passed because the calliper paint doesn't square with my current selection of fashion ensembles. The shade just didn't 'speak to me', I didn't feel it was expressing my individual uniqueness nearly enough so I bought a BMW"

Thinking about it, with 4 color options to choose from, being blue, black, white and grey... blue goes well with all of them.


I wouldn't be nearly as in favor of gold as I am of blue.

its not the color that bothers me.

its that it will turn extremely ugly when you drive the car on a Track day.

Should of given us Black Calipers or Anodized

That's a typical downside of running them hard.
Just will have to paint them black or go what even direction you want with them.

Didn't Ford say at some point the blue Brembos were only for the front wheel? That stealth grey car has them on the back wheels.
didn't find anything with a quick search that specifically talks about the rears but what I did find does make your statement hold more weight as they only mention the front brakes in the follow:

For enhanced braking performance in hard track driving, the all-new Focus RS features 13.78-inch ventilated front discs, up from 13.23 inches on the previous Focus RS. Lightweight aluminum Brembo four-piston monobloc calipers are painted in distinctive RS blue with a Brembo logo available.
