If you guys remove the casting marks on the calipers before having them painted they look as smooth as glass and a million times better. It makes a HUGE difference in the final appearance.

Is simply spraying or brushing them? Do they remove the caliper from the mount and paint the backside as well?

I called Simply Tire this morning and was able to get in and have my calipers cleaned and painted this afternoon. They did an amazing job! I couldn't be happier with how everything looks now. As soon as this storm passes, I will take some pictures and post them.

Mine were sanded done smooth. Look fantastic. There is also Tire Connections in Mississauga that uses G2 paint and sands down as well. Both places to very good work.

As I'm considering in getting Simply Tire in Toronto to paint my e90 335i calipers and rotors, I would love to see some close up images of the finished job of your set-up. Also, are you completely satisfied with the quality of their work? How has it held up as you had it done a while back? One other question, do they sand down the callipers to a smooth finish?
