What color are your wheels? I'm leaning towards yellow. Or if you think yellow will be too bright you can go for a bronze like the GTR's BBK.

I'm thinking yellow but like a little darkish yellow like darkar yellow? Or maybe a darker red? The stock silver is nice but doesn't cut it.. plus my seats are fox red so I feel like any color other than red might throw it off?

I have a Jerez Black on Black E90 M3 with STR60/STR40's; I felt leaving the stock silver annodized color was best. Granted, I will have them under Diamond Black TE37 Ultra's and not Silver HRE's. I still think I'd stick with the stock trophy annodization even with your wheels though, which look awesome btw!

Personally, I would specifically NOT go with red because you have a fox red interior. Reason being is that fox red tends to have a significantly more brownish hue than the kind of red most people use for calipers. That being said, red on black always looks good imo, so you really can't go wrong if that is what appeals to you.

Also consider that if you paint or powdercoat over your annodized Trophy finish, you're kind of nullifying half the point of getting a trophy kit vs a non trophy kit since the only advantages of a trophy kiy over the regular ST kits are: annodized vs painted finish, slightly lighter, slightly different piston sizing (don't even know if this is an advantage, as I'm sure they both provide the same ratios and brake bias since they are both made for the same application).

I'm running yellow BBK's with Fox Red interior, I think it looks great. I have Alpine white however. Still think you can't go wrong with yellow!

Silver or black will keep it classy and understated.
