Painted Caliper colors for the IR M6

I'm thinking of painting the calipers (and putting the M badge) once my IR car arrives.
Would owners mind sharing what colors they have applied to the calipers?

Im thinking black, gold or body color!
Cheers,

What a coincidence, I just posted my weekend project:

Painted my calipers, yellow on IR.

My other choices were gold, black and IR. I deferred gold as I couldn't find any high temp paint in that color and I was also concerned about it being too "sparkly". I ruled out black as I wanted a drastic different look and lastly, IR calipers will make the car too much red and lose the visual effect. Hence, the yellow calipers.

regards,
Gene
