I was not sure about this but they look OK. Actually there not very noticeable you almost have to look for it. In a full car view photo you can not see them. used 1200 degree paint. Just wanted a little custom touch. Don't want to get carried away. Any thoughts.

Between cleaning and putting 4 coats of paint on each, it took about two hours. This high heat paint goes on very thin. You need to be patient and let each coat get tacky before applying the next coat. It did not really start to cover well until the third coat. Used Dupli-Color ceramic 1200 degree paint. Even with four coats there really is not alot of paint on calipers.

My M3 is Laguna Seca Blue. The paint I used was just marked blue in the Dupli Color high heat paint. I have seen red on red and I though it looked great, the red does stand out much more.
