Post photos of Tanzanite Blue 2 BMWs. This color fascinates me, but I hear it only looks good in sunlight and after a carwash when the car is clean.

There are lots of Tanzanite photos on this site already. Please see:

https://www.google.com/search?q=Tanz...bimmerpost.com

If you'd like to see more, you could certainly ask owners of those vehicles to share more pictures.

Unfortunately the paint code GOLD 1PR does not provide us more information if it only used internally by Brembo.

On their website are also 5 reasons why not to use repainted calipers:
