Brake Caliper Colour??

Hey Guys,
My car is RED obviously - what colour brake caliper do you think I should go? I think if I went RED it would be too much RED..I was thinking BLACK but you really can't see BLACK...how about YELLOW or ORANGE..

WHADDYA think?

BTW I also want to get BMW on the caliper..anyone know how to do this?

E.

If you really must have the BMW lettering on it, i would go for either a silver caliper with black lettering or black calliper with silver lettering. A buddy of mine has AP Racing brakes on his jetta and they are black with silver text. IMHO, I think they look pretty good. Will try to get some pics and post it for ya.
Maybe my tastes are bit old fashioned, but there are too many riced out hondas with TINY red and yellow callipers.
