I wanted to keep the oem look so I went with silver on the rotors and calipers. The paint has held up really well too. Yellow or red would look good if you are looking to change it up. More info on the thread below.

Since your wheels are black I would try to match your car color as best I could.

I vote either matching it with your car color or red! The only problem with your car's color though is that it won't stand out very well

not black?? you wouldnt even see them. Silver for classy and clean, yellow for flashy and different or red never looks bad on a nice caliper.

Red would look nice, or a clean silver for 7, I like the anodize gold too but not for a 7 with your exterior color

What suggestions do you guys have for a caliper paint job color on my Barbera Red 7 with these factory wheels? These wheels almost make me think that caliper paint would hardly show at all. I was considering bright yellow?

NO! Definitely not bright yellow Your car looks so classy as it is. If anything, match them with the Barbara Red!
