Painted/powdercoated calipers?

The calipers are too big not to show off. Has anyone done them in red or yellow or any other color? I think red calipers would look sharp on a black M.

Don't be showy like a Porsche Turbo wannabe. Paint them in BMW blue and be discrete and cool.

Just how do you paint them and with what? Do they need to be removed?

BMW Blue?? I think blue can be just as eye popping as red (depending on what shade), so I'm not so sure how much more discreet that would be. Personally I like the contrast of black car/red calipers. I guess that makes me a turbo wannabe then
