Question What color BBKs would you get for AW ?

I am looking to purchase BBK some time soon and can't decide which color to go get

I definitely don't want Red, Blue, Orange or anything like that ...

Black , Yellow, and White are my choices ... But I can't decide which one will be the best choice ...

The black would remind me too much of the perf brakes on the 135i

I say yellow!!!

I have a AW E92 M3 and just ordered a set of Brembo GT BBKs. Decided on black calipers with white letterings.

How I came to this conclusion

yellow - too porsche
red - too obviously brembo, too much screaming "look at my brakes"
silver - too Japanese/Nissan GTR

Black - similar to stock, discrete, understated, most in keeping with the M ideals and look

Why not red? I think that looks the best. Too common?

Yellow's no good on a white car. Black is too bland. Go with the white.

If you won't do red then Yellow is your best choice.
