Red calipers are the biggest fag thing you could do. Why not trade your bimmer in for a civic. I hate rice and this = rice.

paint

hey well your right and I cant agree with you guys any more that painting your calipers with spray bomb is RICE! but if you properly get your oem brakes sand blasted and powdercoated with a clear after like I had my calipers done they look really nice (dont chirp its the best thing I could do untill I buy a brembo BBK), you can make them look like brembo quality if done properly without the brembo monster size calipers/logo
