Depends on the color of your MZ3. Red looks nice since most interiors are red.

If you have the red/black cloth, go with red.
If you have the blue/black cloth, go with blue
If you have the leather, go with both. haha Just kidding.

My choice is red.

My interior is Blue Mix Black....
Becoz My uncle use 350Z's Brembo with Disc put it in his RX-8,it is so powerful,so i maybe try to order a Brembo to put it in 3...
If the Blue interior with Red brake kit,will it too colourful?

Just FYI, the 3 uses a very different brake system than the 6, assuming my information is correct. In fact, the front disc brakes on the 3 are bigger than those on the 6 (actually, I think the rear 3 brakes are bigger than the front 6 brakes) but I could be very wrong. CSweeney or MZ6ZoomZoom can confirm this easiest as they have Mz6s, but actually, come to the think of it, the specs are pretty available. Before I'd go Brembro, I'd just wait for some good replacement pads to be available, and see if that cleans up the braking performace, since they seem to slow the car well, but also seem to create quite a bit of dust. Somebody suggested ceramic brakes, and I know I would certainly love to have a set, if only to arrest my speeding before a police officer arrests me.

Yes but with rain and all....2 months after you'll get your new car they won't shine silver like when they were new.

FYI,

Ive heard very bad things about replacing the stock pads with aftermarket performance pads, ceramic pads, etc and leaving the stock rotors on. Something to do with conflicting temperatures and warping of the rotors. I was at a custom car shop trying to listen to this asian fellow talk, and I was lucky to pick up as much as I did! Anyways, his point was if you're going to do it, do it right the first time. If you change the brake pads, change the rotors as well.

Makes sense to me.....

caliper paint or high temperature engine paint would work for the brake calipers
