I ordered my car with Liquid Silver calipers thinking it would complement the Helios Orange exterior and diamond cut wheels, similar to the way I had my 600LT speced, but those calipers were Polished and they really looked great. But now that I'm looking at pics online and I'm really second-guessing my decision. Is it just the way the camera picks it up or are they really bluish in person? Does anyone have an orange one with Liquid Silver calipers they could take a couple pics of? Does it clash weird in person? The configurator and the MSO experience did not make them look bluish at all, and now I'm starting to get a little worried.

I attached a pic of one of the few I could find online that I think was Brook's friend's car. I don't know what to make of it, cuz some pics and videos it looks very bluish and in others it looks very silver. Anyone with liquid silver calipers, please chime in, thanks.

Here is the online configurator pics, I have to dig up my MSO ones, but they actually weren't very different from the online configurator. Maybe I'm overthinking it like some of you are saying, and I think it's too late to change it, mine is slated to be finished in the middle of July. I just see some online pics where it looks like it stands out very bluish, when my intent was to have the straight up silver look, never seeing liquid silver in person. I guess maybe the bluish hue will kind of match the titanium exhaust tips after a couple hot pulls. But you can see in the pics below it did not have a bluish hue in the renderings, bottom pic was on the dealer configurator.

I saw them on a white car and they look light blue. I think you shouldve went with orange calipers. Just my opinion.
The reason I did not is because there are only two orange choices, McLaren Orange is super bright against Helios Orange, almost looks yellow next to it, and Nardo is actually Salmon colored in the flesh. I wanted MSO to do Helios but it would have delayed my car by up to 6 months, and cost $11k cuz they have never done that color before and it needed to be tested. Silver worked so well on my 600 so it seemed like a no brainer.

liquid silver definitely has some blue in it.
Thanks, but again, these are just pics, the same ones I'm going off. I'm looking for real world feedback. I called Charlotte yesterday and they said it didn't look like that in person. Matt at Tampa said they look more grey in person and it was just an optical illusion on camera. I was hoping someone with Liquid Silver calipers could chime in.

Below is the same car, Brooks' old car, but look at the various caliper color variations for the same exact car. First three look silver, last three look blue. Which one is it in person?
