I think painted a nice gloss black or silver would be nice if done properly with //M stickers. Since you have black matt wheels it would pop with silver and silver would compliment blue.

Do a search. Lots of pics of guys who've painted red, black, blue, yellow, silver etc.

- Black is the simple answer and will look understated/clean, but it won't pop enough with your blacked out wheels
- Navy blue actually looks very nice on an IB car. LI-M5 has done this on his car.
- Silver is hit or miss. One board member found that the silver he got looked too gray.
- Red/Yellow is only appropriate if you have a BBK in my view

I am in the same situation with my 55. It's blue and I would really like to paint the callipers to a colour that would compliment the car. They are even less visible than through the m5 wheels but getting the wrong colour could spoil the car. Black would be the safest option although I was tempted by some paint that looked identical to the orange/gold metallic of Nissan 350z.

The callipers need removing though to achieve the perfect finish.
