Painted my calipers and hat wrinkle black

I was getting tired of my silver calipers always looking dirty, and I really didn't want to be another guy riding around with red factory calipers.
I wanted stealthy and subtle.
So here you go- if you ever wondered what your calipers would look like if you painted them with wrinkle black (that I got at Advance auto)

06 330i 6mt Spt- Eibach Springs, BMW Perf Susp, Supersprint Exhaust, BSW Audio
94 325i 5mt 4d- M3 springs/susp, Z3 wheels, Chipped, Intake, Exhaust= FUN!

I did the same thing a while back. Mine had a nice big coat of rust, too. Took me a while to scrub it off, but so happy with the end result one I painted. I definitely agree with you about not wanting red; black is absolutely the way to go.

Looks good!
