I'd say yellow or blue to be a little different.

Our calipers are ugly, always rusty, but don't they have cheap plates on the exterior so they don't look good anyway....but I always did wonder what would be a good color on a Vette or Porsche...

how about dark blue (like M's) or black...nothing flashy

Black or Silver (aluminum, like when they were new). Anything else will look boy-racer.

Silver, like new.

I painted the calipers on my 530 silver and it looks really clean. I plan to do the same on my 335.
(Wheels are Real Style 42's for anyone who wants to know)

No offense, but why are you letting other people decide what color YOU WANT.... you should get what color YOU think will make your car look better, not what other people think.

if you want to turn heads, then get hot pink. that will definitely get other people's opinions.
