What color should I paint?

Hey guys. Im going to paint my black E320's calipers, but Im not sure whether to paint them Yellow or Red. I've got nice slim 5 star AMG rims, so they'll show. Does anyone have pics or just suggestions on what would look better? (I know red is common and goes well w/ black, but i was thinking yellow would be a lil more rare and still look good, or am I wrong?)

red cars kills me, and it's very sexy .. but there are lots of red Es .. Yellow gives it a sporty look..
so if u like the sporty look go for the yellow

We're talkin about the colour of the calipers, not the car itself. besides a yellow E would look foul

Sure, but yellow has to be far worse than red. A yellow E-class? I cant think of a worse colour for that car.... actually, i dont know if you saw the ads for the E in car mags but they had a bright orange one; it wasnt orange paint but the car was covered in bright orange cloth and it just looked awful... Best to stick to dark colours for these cars

Exclamation Caliper Paint

May i suggest leaving the calipers the stock, Mercedes Benz Colors. Unless you want to paint them red and make them appear like they are, in fact, Brembo brakes. If you want the brembo look, fork the dough, and buy the brakes, otherwise, keep the MB color, its classy. DONT RICE GERMAN CARS!!!
