What color calipers would you get on a Space Grey 335is?

Looking at getting brembo or stop tech....I have a space grey 335is with the M sport 19" style 313 wheels....what would look best? Black, Red, Silver?

14 inch slotted? Drilled? Drilled and Slotted?

thanks!

Silver, just slotted (no drilling!!!!). Red and black stand out too much and can be an eye sore IMO.

maybe paint them a shiny silver, unless you can make the red/green or blue work with what ever your going to do with the car.

I wouldn't paint them....the BBK comes with a colored caliper already....silver or black were my real choices....I like red a lot but may look weird with space grey

Do you have stop tech on your 335i? If so, can you send me some pics?

I wouldn't want my calipers to stand out. The M Sport wheels are too nice to draw the eye to the calipers. Go slotted silver.

I've never been a fan of painted calipers, but to each his own.

My next car is going to be grey with green calipers. Think it is the SICKEST combination on the face of the earth.

I also have a SG 335is, I was looking at brake kits and I didn't think any of the standard colors out there would look right.
I love the gray with green in the pic above. Looks great with the black rims, but not sure it would have the same effect with our stock rims.

I'm not planning on doing any serious track days so decided to hold off on a brake change. For a daily driver the stock setup works great.

I also have a Space Grey/Coral Red combo and my calipers are in need of a paint job as well.. I will definitely go with the red. Would it be better to paint them or just buy new red ones? If the latter, any link to quality red calipers for a 2007 335i coupe? Thanks!
