I think your car is best with the standard brakes.

This may sway you...

Our wheels are (somewhat) similar and you'll need something with enough contrast. I'm very happy with yellow on mine, although red can also work in your case:

Thank you for the visual PICs, greatly appreciated ! On the front 380mm 6 Piston did you have any issues clearing your RIMS ?

Originally I was leaning towards black to stay with Black and White contrast. Then reading people's feedback and considering the coin I'll be dropping on Front and Back kits.... WTF might as well flash them and Red is certainly the most noticeable to see through MESH style rims

You'll need at least 19-inch rims to clear the 380mm's, and even then some rims are prone to rubbing against the caliper--my Breytons rubbed big time and necessitated some "modifications" to the front calipers.

I can't tell from your pic whether you're on 19s or 20s. You shouldn't be concerned if you're the latter... otherwise I'd recommend going with the 350mm's to save you some brain damage...

Do NOT get black or silver...can't see them and they will blend in too much...you definitely need a contrasting color.

Can never go wrong with red calipers...believe me, everyone and their mother will see them from like 10 miles away.

They're 19s. Based on some of the posts and do appreciate your experience feedback, I'll play safe by going with 355mm 6 Piston Front.

Thank you

I voted yellow, but look at this custom painted caliper (I think it's Lambo orange), looks stunning on AW e92.
