Turquoise - on account of the F1 Petronas livery.

Loving the irony of the poll results colours!!
Deliberate or Automatic?
Hoping the former.

Understatement is my choice. Reward the onlooker, not draw them.

They look much like the Porsche Sport Design wheels on my black Cayman. Personally, I've come to really like the silver ring around the edge of the wheel. I agree with Rayaan, it breaks up an otherwise completely black car.

For calliper colour, it has to be red or yellow. Having said that, on Porsche at least, yellow callipers mean the car has carbon ceramic discs. I don't know if yellow callipers would signify something on a Merc?
