Advice on color of calipers?



Hi all,

Just wanted to get your guys opinions on what you think would suit it the most...

Car is about to get spacers and springs put on soon, but this weekend I'm getting the calipers done too.

Really don't feel like doing black as its pretty boring...

My top 3 choices are ..
1. AMG Silver
free screen capture softwarecertificity.com

2. White (Although i think white looks better with black wheels) + (people are telling me to go against it as it gets dirty too fast and its hard to clean, but i'm having it professionally done

3. Blue (the blue in question would be like an M blue...not some bright as obnoxious blue).. like this:

Keep it classy and clean. Silver looks best on OEM calipers.
White will show brake dust & any small corrosion in no time.

If you had a BBK, my answer would be different.

Last minute i decided on doing a midnight blue color, i love it

(If in any of the images it turned out brighter blue, its just the lighting, its a deep blue in person)

Removed, machined and got all the rust off, and painted the hub black and protected it.
