Painting my calipers, what colour?

Hi all. I'm thinking of getting my calipers painted on my A7. It's a Mythos Black A7 Black edition with 21" rotor alloys.

As the car is predominantly black , I 'm thinking black calipers too, but my wife says that's too much black going on, so she suggests a light silver. What do you guys think? Or any others ideas, but no colours i.e. red/blue/yellow/green etc.

I'm with your wife on this one, silver would be best and more OE like, but better.

Silver all the way. Any other colour will look tacky IMO

They’d have to be some kinda brakes to fill 21” rims!
