AW E92 Brake Caliper Paint Job

Hey guys,

What color calipers would look better for an AW E92 325i?

- Lambo Orange
- Lime Green
- Yellow

Also does anyone have any pics with any of these combos?
What brand would you recommend? G2 or Duplicolor?

Any help would be appreciated!

I painted mine black, I didn't want to go to flashy on my AW. But I used G2 and it is awesome. I had a friend that used dupli color and G2 is much much better.

What difference did you find between the two brands?

^^^ +1 The brush in the G2 kit is what used to be called an acid brush. Practically useless for this application. Buy a few brushes of various widths.

i'd prefer to spray but they'd suggest you take the actual brake out yes?
if not use a brush?
