You don't have to buy coloured calipers.
Buy some caliper paint from autobarn or something.
Take off your wheels and mask the surrounding areas.
(bits you don't want painted!!)
Make sure you clean em good.
I find degreaser, rinse off, then hit it with a wirebrush works well.
Hit it with a few coats to give it a nice smooth finish.

just paint your calipers. heaps of threads on that if you want more info.
as for coloured brake pads, some brands do colour the backing plate, Ferrodo Targets are a bright green, EBC Greenstuff are green I think and Redstuff are red (never seen EBC padsso that's just going off what I have been told). There's no reason you can't also paint the back plate of your brake pads to match your calipers if you can be rooted(just don't paint the side that touchs the dicsc!!!)!

the pbr calipers are not just a coloured caliper, but part of a brake upgrade kit, abt $2500 installed, 2 front calipers discs and i beleive braided brake lines.

do a search and plenty of info on how to paint current calipers.
