It looks like it, and looks a lot better on brakes.
That color on the M3 is just IMO.

Yes, they are the same color, I used the Phoenix yellow to touch up my BMW performance BBK and didn't notice any color variation.

Painting brakes goldish/bronze on a white car looks pretty good from what I've seen on some BBK's
