I had Interlagous (Rdsport BBK) on my car and I am getting them painted now. I will tell you they won't look very interlagous with brake dust and the white lettering is hard to keep white. If you clean and maintain your car a on regular then maybe they will look nice but mine just started looking darker and darker every time I cleaned them and the white wasn't white after a while. I am doing orange now just cause if it gets dirty it will still look noticeable. Just my opinion. I would have kept them the original colour but that would require me to take off the wheels every time to clean them.

+1. I had interlagos Brembos on my benz. Have to stay on top of keeping them clean or else they look like crap. Ended up repainting them a lighter blue.

Beautiful car and color,I would do yellow calipers or IB calipers. Yellow if you really want it to stand out and IB if you want more subtle.

IB gets my vote... Silver would be a close second. Yellow or red are going to look cheesy in my opinion - it's not a Ferrari. Stay classy, San Diego.

I myself like yellow and red and all bright colors. But I really like the interlagos ones, but my twist on them would be.........

Interlagos caliper with yellow Brembo logo
Yellow caliper with interlagos Brembo logo

Or

Interlagos caliper with red Brembo logo
Red caliper with interlagos Brembo logo

if you take your car to the track, they'll turn into "Brown-bos" anyways, so moot point if this is the case. I would just go for the OEM industrial finish:
