Paint code please and thank you! I have to find an M5 pic to look at as a reference in the meantime!

This is the funniest Thread I've seen today.

Why would you care what someone else thinks?

It is not their car and they are not paying for them so buy whatever YOU like.

Problem solved.

...Any experience with cleaning / discoloring tracked calipers!?
If I didn't find out other people's advice on this I would have gotten Ferarri yellow, had it look amazing for 3 weeks, then hit Laguna Seca with race compound pads, baking in the discoloration and ruining the bright yellow. But seeing pictures of how discolored a tracked BBK can get, I think a darker color is in order.
