Blue Calipers on White F30!!

Hi guys!!

Well my first real contribution to this forum, for those who were wondering how blue calipers looked on an alpine white F30 Luxury Line, here it is!

Sorry for the crappy quality, its getting dark and my iphone's flash is crud.

Now let me explain that these were painted by a friend of mine who is no expert in cosmetics but he made a bloody good job at it, not to mention he adjusted my front brakes while he was at it, SWEET!

The rims are not kind to the calipers' visibility but i saw my car while in another car and they make a propeller effect, meaning that the faster you go the more visible my blue calipers are!

Either way, i already spent my savings on the new Pilot sport plus A/S tires, which are SOOO much better than my Continental R/Flats, so new rims are out of the question for now.

Any comments/questions are highly appreciated!

They look great!

I'd been wondering if people had their calipers painted after the fact. I'm going to look into it.

I was actually between orange and Estoril Blue-Like. And i went with the blue because the Orange was just outrageous.. more suitable for a Seat Ibiza or something of the sort.

Will post daylight pics when i can!

How can I have this done, and what is the possibility of having the calipers white color because my F30 is jet black?

I just went to my local shop and my friend told me he could do the work.

Told him to make a mask out of the BMW symbols on the floor frames of the doors and copy it on the front calipers... Charged 145 bucks for the whole job.

White would look cool but remember why that color isnt so popular.. Brake dust!

Black with orange anyone?

I agree they would look much better with different rims
