I have a silver 430 and went silver with mine and then added a black Mercedes decal. I think they look great IMHO. For a black car I would go silver or black. Red looks a little rice to me.

Yellow give it that cool "industrial" look. If you match them to your car, It looses its impact imho.

I'd go with red. Lots of expensive cars come with red calipers ( ==> they are not rice).

But there is a HUGE difference between factory painted red big brake kits/calipers and regular brake kits/calipers painted by owners.
