Got to be red, best colour for calipers regardless of the car's colour IMO.

Re: Painting my calipers

Because your car is Blue, going for either the red or yellow is a visual mistake either way and black is just...well, boring.

Perhaps try dark purple that either is a slight candy aspect or a slight metalic aspect so that it harmonizes with your cars colour.

Re: Painting my calipers

Did her 147's red, with some engine enamel. Really could do with better looking front calipers though, as the anti-rattle springs spoil the overall effect with the standard ones, imo.:
