OEM colour, painted calipers take away from the car IMO. Wheels and ground effects are far more important to the overall look of the car. Plus, why draw attention to something that isn't a performance upgrade like a BBK?

Silver or Black. Subtle yet nice. Pretty much any other color does not look good when dirty.

if they were BBK I would go with yellow, it's different, but if there were stock it would have to be black or silver

Stock calipers should never be painted red... you might as well just get these:
