Feedback on red calipers for stock brakes

Is it possible to find red calipers for the stock brakes. I don't want to paint the current ones. Input pls. who make them ?? does Brembo/stoptech/rotora offer calipers only for the stock discs?

all i need is the red colored caliper not the brake upgrade ... for many reasons ... 1st i think bmw did a gr8 job on their brakes ... plus its too expensive its not worth it .. and if i paint it .. it wont last long with the type of weather i live in.

Neil,

The painted calipers do look sick! I really like the ///M stickers as well....where did you get those?

Did you have an autobody shop paint the caliper for you?

How's the Eisenmann setup?

LI-M5 nice look with the calipers and I love the "M" colors on them. Great touch! I presume they are powdercoated finish? That's how they will hold up over time. BTW whose wheels are those?

he had his fiberglass guy copy the logo from the trunk emblem then he stuck them to the paint and clearcoated over them !!
