I don't know if they have a compatible color but I painted my stock calipers with a kit I got from JEGS. I think it was made by duplicolor. Seems like it was about $30. It included a large aresol can of brake cleaner you wouldn't need for new calipers. The paint has held up well (I painted mine red).

Nice DIY. When I did the M school, the brakes of the M cars impressed me at least as much as the engines. My 128i has good brakes but not as good as an M.

Do you need 18 inch wheels for these calipers?
