Here's a picture of my 2017 R8 V10+ (that I bought from this forum a month ago). Been having fun with some small mods. This picture was right after paint correction, xpel PPF, and ceramic coating.

I'm planning on adding some spacers and then painting the calipers. After that, I'll probably get UltimatePD's aero kit. Would like to get everybody's advice:

Looks like there's a bit of discussion on spacer widths, but no real consensus. Seemed like 11mm front and back was pretty popular. I also saw 15mm back and 11m front. Thoughts? Also, are there much differences in brand?

Also, trying to decide on caliper color. I'm thinking blue, yellow, lime green, or orange. What do you guys think?

On my stock set I did 12mm front and 15mm rear, and I’m actually going to paint my calipers Porsche Lizard Green

Hey Chris! Recognized your car with The Shop background! 15/12 seems like a good mix. Where are you getting the painting done? Yourself? Or getting it done somewhere?

I just had my GF Macan done at Polished Image in Tacoma. Brian did an awesome job.

What color is your car? I'm sitting here trying to figure out if it's black, or a really dark blue or purple even?

@torqueit - it’s mythos black. I kinda wish it was purple though - that would be a cool exotic color :)
It makes me think of my phantom black - seems to catch a lot of colors with the metallic in it and change how it looks based on what's around it. I think I'd go for the yellow on the calipers. And yeah, purple is a neat color. A really dark purple metallic would be sweet.

@ULTIMATEPD I saw on some other threads where you recommended 11mm to minimize risk of hitting the fenders during hard cornering. Do you think 15mm will be ok?
