2008 Mustang brake caliper paint?

Hello all.
I have a 2008 v6 with the pony package. I am currently considering painting my brake calipers red. My girlfriend says it would look good but one of my friends says it will look stupid. My car is black with the white stripe down the side. I was originally going to paint them black but later i am looking to black rims so my final decision, if i follow through, will be red. All that to ask this. Do you guys think it will look ok being on a black car with the white side stripe.?

2008 v6 Pony Package.

5 psi~ 286rwhp, 331 rwtq
