Talking What colour should I paint my calipers??

My e36 is calypso rott (burgundy / dark red) and i want to paint my calipers.

Currently they're really rusty and look crap, especially when you can see them clearly through my chrome wheels.

I'm thinking either black, silver or yellow (as an offset colour)

what do you reckon?

1995 E36 320i Coupe
19" Chrome Kaizer Spade II's
Ventura Lowering Springs
Sony 6 disk changer w/ Minidisc headunit
12" pioneer sub, sony 6x9's
600w 4 channel American pro Chrome amp

Pics of my car

Colour?

Black definately. I'm on my second Beemer and I've done them black on both. It doesn't tarnish like silver does

are u gunna get them powder coated? or just buy some high temp paint, and spray them??

on a red car, prolly just black!!

YELLOW/RED wont look right...
SILVER/RED.. might be a little better, since u said u have chrome rimes...

i sprayed mine red, and they looked like crap, so i just matched mine silver, and now they loook great!
