Hey, since you are spending some $$$$ on a brake upgrade, get them red if you want them to pop. Black would be my second choice. Silver is to plain, IMO. Here's a pic of my Charger with factory red Brembo calipers with different wheels. You can see how the red calipers bring attention to them and the wheels. I thought of painting them yellow but the finish wouldn't be as good unless they were powder coated. IMO, the red calipers will look great with your rims.

Honestly...I agree with another poster...red looks a little tacky on my car...a little ricyy...I think I will go with Black or Silver...

Thanks for all the feedback !

BMW blue with white "BMW" letters - all day long.

Don't do yellow, gold or lambo green. With yellow or gold, you'll be sorry after one drive due to the brake dust. And, it's not a lambo so forget the green. British racing green could be a unique choice...

Rotors- has others have said, slotted and/or cast holes. Avoid drilled rotors, especially if you intend to venture onto the track. Also keep in mind, the slotted rotors will eat your pads more quickly...
