anybody have any good source for getting brake calipers painted?
if so how much? I do not want to spend 1k or something. I would like professional job. If i can't find anyone to do it, I might just have to do it myself. I want to try the pro(s) first. Please advise.

I've been considering painting my calipers as well... For those of you who have done it: what color did you go with? Have any pics that you can share?

Hey Raja, I just upgraded to a BBK. So I have my stock painted calipers removed and they're just sitting in my garage. If you're interested I can let them go for cheap.

That looks awesome. I've got a white E92 on black wheels as well; the red calipers look great with that combination. I was also wondering what yellow would look like...

I am just beginning to contemplate this mod, not sure what the time frame is for me. I will keep you posted if I decide to pick up your calipers for a good deal.

Well I went to art school...so yes I can paint your calipers. I actually bought a bunch of painting supplies last week so I can paint anything of reasonable size now (not a whole car).

I used the g2 paint system
Damn easy, and looks great
Only tip is don't mix the paint in one go
I mixed half, did the fronts
Then mixed the rest for the rears
I also got an audi sticker logo, and then clear coated the calipers
Looks great

I've used it before and it looked good 3 years after I painted it
