I dont think F-Sport blue would look good at all with Breakwater Blue. I'd go Yellow....

If you want a more subtle color, go with black with white lexis decals.

If you want something that stands out more, go with either red or blue

I can't help but comment on this thread since I'm a designer.

If you really want to pop against that light blue my suggestions are:

-Metallic Red (MRM might even work)
-Shocker Yellow (it's a green/yellow bright color, there is lots of images in google)
-White Pearl (will get dirty but look so clean)
-Fuchsia/Purple type of color

Hmm, Lots of good ideas. Can anyone photo shop some Caliper colors on the BBM car below? Like white calipers, purple, and that yellow or green. I'm in Seattle so green might be kinda cool since Seahawks have the blue and green thing going. And hoping they pull off the super bowl win this year.

I like the yellow idea...defo no red or blue.

Subtle--black or silver
Statement --yellow

Thanks its just paint. I wet sanded the parts you can actually see a few times to get the texture or the calipers to not show as much. Took a few coats of paint.

Well damn! You must be a designer because those all sound like excellent combos. I do like how the white looks though (for the op). Be sure you post pics of them installed when you can!
