Which caliper colour should I do?

I'm looking to get my calipers painted soon in either:

1) Purple
2) Gold
3) Black with green BMW lettering
4) Green

Or if you guys have any other suggestions comment them !

Gold but only if it's bright like yellow.

Your exterior really pops, so I'd stick to something subtle. Black with green lettering

Green with black lettering, to contrast your body colour from behind the wheel!

Garage List
I went with gloss black with white BMW lettering. After applying the decals I coated everything in a thick layer of clear. See this link for more details:

I did get everything sandblasted so it wasn't a quick and dirty job. A few years ago I tried to paint them with the G2 paint, after a lot of prep work with an angle grinder and steel brush attachment they looked pretty good. One winter though and the rust returned. Good luck!
