Caliper decals look cheap?

I'm painting my calipers soon and I was thinking about maybe putting on Infiniti caliper decals.
I need some opinions.
Does it look cheap?
I was thinking of silver decals on black calipers.

The white is too bright. Maybe if it was less white and not stand out as much, it could work. But without the mt. fuji.

Yes it looks cheap. No reason to draw more attention to a stock caliper.

Yea I liked the brembo gold on DG so I painted them gold. If i was going for a brembo wannabe i would of put brembo decals on it.

I like em, got a lotta compliments in real life (where it matters), a lotta newbs mistake them from brembos at car meets too which is funny. dont have $3k for BBKs and i think black looks worse than any color. (i know its for "clean"), but up close they just look weird.

I did black calipers on the Maxima with silver Nissan logo. Does not jump out at you at all and looks fantastic. I do think the white logo is too jumpy. My G is silver calipers with black Infiniti, also does not jump out at you and looks clean. I like both combos equally.

I think red with white logo would look decent.

Meh, not a fan. Just leave them a solid color with NO decals.

I think the problem with the first photo. In addition to being white, is the size.The logo needs to be smaller and would look better in a silver. Try FastDecals you can order custom sizes. I don't have a problem with stock calipers with Infiniti logos. They are after all Infiniti parts.
