I don't know, but I went for metallic orange. . If you went with metallic orange, you would virtually be the only BMW with them. And that is what I call "unique"!

With stock brakes I think that black would look best. It would look like stock, but cleaner. I thinkt that red and other colors just look like fake brembos IMO.

I voted other since im not into the whole caliper painting thing. If you want the calipers to draw attention, get a bbk. IMO, stock painted calipers look cheap.
