1 vote for yellow... black & yellow, a flashy combination if that's you are after.

My yellow Spyder has black ones. Between the 15 spoke wheels and the brake dust they're hard to notice.

Yellow.

Although, Ferrari and Lambo both have Yellow Caliper options (FoW has examples of both).

My Grigio Alfieri has Red and I love them. But Black and yellow is hard to pass up. I love Dr. Martens, and the Gallardo's with yellow stiching/piping!

Don't forget mine rolling on 19's with 10 spokes .. and you can see the caliper very clearly..

Abdul, since it is a black car one more vote for red (just like mine).

The dealer ordered my car and they ordered black on black... my choice would have been to have the calipers in red.

I also vote for red. I have a black on black Spyder, and it came with red calipers that initially I thought were a bit overdone, but they have grown on me. I could live with black or grey, but I think the car would look a bit dull. Yellow calipers with black wouldn't do it for me at all. And while I am at it, I just don't get those Lambo's that come in lime green, robin egg blue, and tangerine orange and so forth. I never even get around to looking at the caliper color, I just cringe and walk away.
My next car, if I can get decent priority on a list somewhere, is a new black on black F430 with red calipers.
Just what you guys needed, one more opinion.

Red on black is classy. Yellow looks awsome on a red car.

I would go for red. In fact i am trying to change my original black ones to the red or yellow ones. Anyone know how much to change the callipers? Heard u cant just spray them cos they must withstand high temperatures. Is that true?

There is Caliper Spray Paint that is designed for high temps. However, this is usually done on Civics not Masers ;-) I would NOT use it.

Changing calipers is probably around $3500. That is just a guess based on other cars I have owned. They are not cheap.
