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?

yup had the body shopp do them he used the same paint as the car from my front and rear spoiler !!

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

as for the eisanmann i love it !! defenetly a little quieter than i wanted but it'll do !! i got the ovals and i got the sound so im good..

guys i called stoptech, rotora, dinan, brembo, willwood, and probably 3 other ones. None of them offer the caliper for the stock ones :reallypissed: I believe my only option is to paint them, OR buy a BBK.

what do you guys think ?? is there any other option ??
