What Color should I paint my Calipers?

I have a rally yellow 2012 1 SS/RS with Black Bumblebee Stripes. I have also black carbon fiber bowties....So my question is??? What Color should I paint Calipers?

I am thinking Rally Yellow with Chevrolet in black and Brembo in red

Black with Chevrolet in yellow and Brembo in red

Red with Chevrolet in black and brembo in white outlined in silver....

Really torn.....Any advice/suggestions???

Red will make it look like McDonalds, so I would do black or blue!

The red calipers actually don't look that bad with a yellow car!

I like either Red or Black!

What color rims do you have? I personally like a metallic silver with no logos with black rims on yellow.

Yellow would really match your color scheme better than red. Since you have black wheels, the yellow calipers would really show off.

I like red. It will give you that classic Brembo look with some contrast with the yellow just like this 1LE.

My wheels are the factory 20' that look more like pewter. Still leaning towards red. Yellow will be too much, I want contrast.....so as it stands....still red...
