Painting calipers

There are caliper paint kits, but the process will require a lot of prep. Also, the OEM calipers are not the best looking, especially the rear--not sure I'd want to call attention to them. Rotara offered a caliper only kit for the E46 M3--check with Evosport to see if they will be coming out with an E90/92 kit. Their 6 piston/4 piston full kit with rotors was about $4k on the E46.
