Mods part 8 - Painted Calipers

Time to get rid of the skanky calipers with a fresh paint job
Red highlights on the space gray look good IMO.. so RED it is
Tried to get a red as close as possible to the red tail lights to give it a balanced look

Pics 1 - 4 Front/Rear - Before and After
Pics 5 - 8 Painting calipers
Pics 9 - 10 Finished

Car is looking great socket. Calipers and rotors make all the difference .

I think style 230's are one of my all time favourite BMW wheels. I actually bought a set for my car which is M-sport. Took the 225M's off and put 230's on. Looked awesome. I ended up with AG M359's to fill the guards out a bit. Why don't you try some spacers on your wheels. I have seen it done before. Those 230's look the business when flush with the guard.

The M359s are a nice wheel 335... much nicer than the 230s
Spacers would flush those wheels up for sure.... maybe mod 9

I am a bit disappointed Socket, you could have at least done the job properly.
