Boring brake calipers

I own a 93 M5 Touring which already has uprated brake discs and pads. The Porsche upgrade looks great but is too expensive and for my mainly road usage not justified. The current calipers are visually boring, does anyone know if it's possible to get a simple cover to make them look more interesting through the alloys(red would be nice, or even an ///M logo).Thanks.

The paint does not make a good brake out of it, hope you know that.

Like I said the uprated discs and pads give me all the performance upgrade I need for my usage. Is there anything wrong with purely cosmetic enhancements? (How many of the pictures on the site say how good a car looks?)
