Thumbs up Repainted My Calipers

I had previously painted them @ 6 years ago in silver and they had help up nicely.
I decided to go for something a little more bold this time around.
Loving the results.. .

Friend of mine did this over a year ago and he washes his car in a drive through once a week! His still look new! So definitely worth it.
Be sure to use a good brake cleaner and degreaser.

Looks great Marcus. I'm back in a 7er this week as I picked up a '17 B7. Had the F10 M5 for about 5 years and traded it for a new C7 Corvette when they had 0% for 84 months this summer. Worst mistake I ever made. Corvette was cheaply made, idled rough, and was so noisy inside the cabin. I Always liked my 7's although my 2009 lived in the shop. The M5 was actually super reliable. This B7 feels like the M5 with the comforts of the 7.

I agree, the M5 was very reliable. One of my favorite cars owned. I've been debating whether to pick up a CPO B7 or F90 M5 next. I enjoyed the G12 7 but want something different.

My only complaint on the F10 M5 was that the ride was never really that smooth. I know it's a sports car but the ride was a little hard for me. The B7 ride is so smooth even with 21's.

Thanks my friend! And everything you just said is spot on from what I've either heard or experienced.
I do plan to grab a 2020 M Sport with very specific color scheme and options. Either late this year or next year when folks are coming off of that 2 or 3 year Lease return.
I have some special plans for it.
I haven't been in a rush to dole out cash due a replacement since my engine got replaced in this car from BMW. She's still super clean inside and out. Heck I only drive @ 3 or 4k miles a year.

Thanks. Go for it. Adds some nice pop! Especiallyif you have aftermarket wheels.

Here is a member on Facebook that really went unique with a 3 shade color recently.
