Smile Yellow Calipers? What Do You Think?

Do you think i should paint them yellow, any other color or leave them as is?
I've seen some on AW cars with yellow calipers and they look great.

Some photoshops i did of yellow calipers.

Gun metal to match the wheels or black if you want some contrast.

I Don't like, especially when it looks very cheap on an expensive car. Real BBK, on the other hand, would compliment your car.
