What colour should I paint my Brembos?

I need to pick a new colour for my BBK and need some help guys. I've attached a pic below so you get an idea of how the car looks. Before anyone says I change it up all the time, the side view of the car usually looks the same and this is probably the only picture I have of my car so I can't really throw up any updated pics, besides it's not much diff. The tint isn't that light in person though, the suns super bright in the pic.

The only colour that I think will flow with the look of my car is black, but I just feel like it's not popping out enough so I wanted to have them sprayed something different to see how I like it. I was thinking grey, but then again everyone's telling me to do something a bit more bold.


Any ideas on colours??

The tail lights are switched to LCI Tails and I MIGHT end up switching to coral red interior someday so red might match a bit, but I feel like red's very common and I just wanted to try something different for the winter. Lambo Orange would be SWEET if I had black wheels - time to buy new winters? Lime Green, Bmw blue, lemans blue, yellow, chrome, anodized red or blue, a darker red, bmw phoenix yellow (performance)???



PS: No I don't need to change my reflectors ahha

Some sort of Orange or Copper would be my suggestion. It'd work well with silver OR black wheels.

I'd say gold or one of the darker shades of blue (similar to the new ///M brakes) if you want it to be noticeable but not loud. Lime green if you want it to be loud and proud.

white, lime green/lambo green, yellow, silver/grey.

don't do red

you could just leave them black and have the lettering in white to give it a subtle pop.
