Ok, so what are you using to do this? Just high-temp spray paint? Taking them to a shop? Etc.

I know this thread is ancient but color matching DSB would look good, that or a bronze or gold color, even yellow/orange as you want contrast. Here is a link to a color wheel, opposite color is the complimentary one http://visualfocus.org/color-wheels/

Don't know if the link is working for anybody else, but it isn't for me. Maybe try posting it again.

Hey guys, just got around to painting these tiny calipers and figured I'd share some pics for those interested.

I used:
• G2 caliper paint DIY kit ($80 CAD)
• High temp clear in a rattle can ($15)
• M stickers were sourced from ebay ($10)

3 coats of paint followed by 5 coats of clear. Figured I'd clean my wheel hubs while I was at it - nothing a steel brush wheel and grinder couldn't fix.

Looks pretty good! Any pictures of the full car? Also, was there any reason why the M-sticker is facing in toward the center of the hub on the rear caliper, but outwards on the front caliper?

Thanks man!
I still haven't taken any full pics of the car just yet, but I will try to asap.

I had all M stickers facing the rear of the car. I believe all M cars come like this from the factory...

Nice work. Want to do so while calipers remain on the car (once its warm outside).
Need to figure out how to keep the lighter colored BMW lettering. Wondering if clear-coat over eBay stickers would last?
