Does Brembo make calipers that will just replace the OEM? I don't have the $ to do a full big brake kit... but the sweet Brembo calipers colour coded to the body would look nice

If your calipers are in good shape just buy some caliper paint or engine block paint and paint them. Or you can send them to a shop to have them powder coated. That way you don't have to spend money on the name even though they're probably a better caliper.

Thanks guys!

I was thinking of just sending mine out to get body matched... Although it sounds superficial... I like the "Brembo" that you see on the rotor...

My thoughts was to get it done to have the same "B" but say "Bimmer"...

Stupid???

I've got a better idea, put on the OE M3 brakes, paint them whatever color you want and your ready to rock. I've got a set for sale so email me if interested. BTW, the E36 M3 brakes are the same ones used on the E34 M5 !!

These will give you big time stopping power !

I agree Furious.... This probably won't happen until next summer when I buy some real wheels... we'll see what i feel like then... I was just bored and "shooting the shit" if you will...
