Painted calipers

Thinking of painting my calipers. What are some good colors that would match with a mineral white M3 and black wheels?

I agree, would like to get some brembo's, but outside of my current budget.

Just leave alone until you run into a great deal on a set of BBK. You will find some used ones on the Marketplace. I did just the ST40 kit on the front, relaively inexpensive and gives you some nice bite. Painted stockies accentuate just how small they are, behind black wheels it will look even worse. The Matte Black Edition comes with OEM painted red calipers and doesn't look so bad but its OEM at least... for now I vote: LEAVE 'EM ALONE.
