They still work to perfection however.
Don't like hearing this. I wondered if possibly getting brake fluid on the caliper caused some of the dulling of the anodizing. Just a thought...

If they could be powdercoated easily without destroying something, I might be interested in that. Much more durable than paint!! I have seen these calipers painted on the lambo painted M3's
