I just got my car back from having this mod done. I was able to get a very close match on the powder coat paint with my Melbourne Red. BMW brakes aren't the prettiest, but at least now they're a nice color.

Looks great. I am with you. Love the clean look.
I spend 8 hours painting all 4 calipers VHT high temp red. 7 of the 8 hours was spent cleaning and prepping.

really need a rear m-performance kit for the rear breaks in order to upgrade both at the same time. This does look good though

Gonna do mine in black when I get time. I think they are too ugly to dare to attract any attention to them.

I always take my car for a short run around the block after washing the car and apply the brakes a few times this prevents the rust to take over

Nice job on the powder paint job
