Anything is possible, but why would you want to do that?

Because mine are standard metal ones which within 6 months will be rusty and the wife's are upgraded powder coated ones with BMW logo on...

Simple solution: if you're so afraid they'll rust (mine haven't in nearly 7 years), go to the parts store and buy some brake caliper paint. Take an hour or so of your time and paint the calipers. Easier than doing a complete brake swap, which is questionable at best.
