Painting the calipers...

I saw the G2 brake caliper paint system on tirereack for $38 - anyone ever use this? Is it any good? Here is the link....

I used it on my Z4. I took the calipers off and the spring steel pieces off the calipers. I did not disconnect the hoses or remove the pads. Looks perfect even after four years.

Only problem is our calipers are already painted so I would imagine there is a little extra prep work to rough up the painted surface. I would try to leave the white BMW letters on the calipers.
