Red Brake Callipers / Change in Exaust

Hello, I recently bought a 2014 BMW GT 320D. Right now I'm looking to find red brake calipers but I'm quite new to find new parts. I've been looking around but it never quite sure to whether they will fit, but my biggest problem is that I haven't yet found any red brake calipers at all. On the other hand, I have found a different quad exhaust pipe I want to add to it but now I'm looking to find a decent rear bumper that would fit those. this is the exhaust I found: http://www.eisenmann.co.uk/index.php...earch=bmw+320D
maybe you guys have advice on whether it's good or not, I'm not entirely sure whether it would make it sound better (because it is a diesel after all), but it will definitely look better.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

Paint them. It's a lot less expensive than buying new calipers. As for the exhaust, that's a lot of money for something that's not going to do anything for the performance of a 320D.

But the exhaust would make it look better, the brake calipers are a little rusty, I'm not entirely sure what I could do to enhance the performance a lot more.

Part of the reason why you'd paint the calipers is because they're rusty. You can spend a few hundred quid on new calipers, give them two years, and then they'll be rusty too. No offense, but I find the idea of spending all that money on an exhaust because it looks better to be a silly waste of coin. Invest that money, then you'll have it to spend on your next car.

If you want the exhaust to look better, then replace the tips. Any muffler shop can weld in new ones for you. Buying a full exhaust is always an option, just an expensive one if all you want is it to look better.

As mentioned, painting your calipers isnt very much work, lots of tutorials online that cover it. Can do the basic paint while on your car or remove them and have them powder coated.
