    Your title says "break caliper colour".

    Not sure you can break the colour?

    I wanted yellow with my paint colour but went for red and really happy with them I think red or yellow would go well with carbon black. You could go really lary and maybe do a purple/blue as it’s kinda in the carbon black paint.
    I was told that yellow calipers would fade more so I went for red but not sure if that’s correct or not

    I think red can work on black - I went yellow on mine as I'm not a fan of red with blue, don't know why.

    Honestly though on Black I think silver could work pretty nicely

    Hi ,I just done mine gloss black same as the csl ,an put some M decals on them.Which was a lot easier than painting in the m emblem cast on the calipers ,which I wanted to do first .very subtle an wont put people off if I ever sell.

    Just re read what you wrote, are these just the standard calipers? If so I’d leave them as they are as

    Standard calipers, keep them silver or black as painted standard calipers look a bit Barry?

    Big brakes on a black car, Red

    this is the kit i bought
    https://freakyparts.co.uk/products/bmw-e46-m3-brembo-4-pot-big-brake-kit
    you need to buy the CSL discs yourself. morning they do a E9* kit too but I don’t know what included or involved in that.
    also I run CSL reps and std 19’s and haven’t needed spacers but some people have depending on what wheels you have so best to check with them. mots not as hardcore as a true BBK but if your not a track slag it’s the perfect set up/go between in my opinion. I’m very happy
