I was also thinking yellow! Everything is completely murdered out and just the caliper color would make it stand out so much. It's such a hard decision for me. The blue zr1 calipers look so nice too. DAMN

Beautiful car. Not to derail the intent of the thread, but would you mind sharing your wheel/tire combo and sizes? I like the stance of your car very much.
As for the caliper color...I'd go red or yellow.

I have a black corvette with black rims and black calibers with polished letters..

Looks awesome and what id recommend.

I dont have photos but i just painted the calibers black this year...

It was easy and it looks bad ***.

I chose black because i never did this before and figured black would not show up my inexperience...

Ended up an easy easy job...

I just put chapstick on the letters ..or vasaline...i dont remember...a little newspaper and tape..sprayed and was done real quick..

Simple simple job...

I just used some sand paper lightly after wiping off the vasaline on the letters...maybe i did the letters before using the paint..l

I dont remember but it came out great.

The c6 rear calibers are kind of dinky...didnt want a different color like red or white or yellow to make tjat aspect more noticable...and the black worked..

Good luck deciding...

If the op is wanting honest opinions...thatís not a good look!

You can also paint the back of the pads. It gives it just enough color to stand out but not overwhelming. If you don't like it, it's easy to change. Not a black car, but I do have black wheels.
