Highly likely that you will have to put it back to stock version. Meaning, no painting / modification.

Do you want to take that chance when returning at end of lease ?

simply tire uses caliper paint that chips off rather quickly & melts at the track during intense braking and needs to be repainted quite often.

Here is another solution, Quy's coating powdercoating calipers

Look at MGP Caliper Covers. Same effect and you can take them off when lease is over. I have done both and would not paint again. The covers will also help with the brake dust.

Save your money and do it yourself, it's very easy to do. Go buy a DIY paint kit.

It took them about an hour and it was well worth the $80. I could have prob done it myself if i had the time, but considering i have to go buy everything and my time, this was worth it!! I also had ALOT of rust on my hubs
