335i Brake Caliper Question

Hey guys, just a quick question for those in the know. Do the calipers (front) on the 335i have a painted finish, or are they just raw metal? I know they aren't a color like the m-sport brakes, but was wondering if they were a gloss finish...I can't seem to find any photos good enough to tell the finish.

Thank you!

It's like a Matte gray. It stains very easily and doesn't look great, but better looking than the single piston brakes like on the e90 or 328i.

It is an easy paint job with caliper paint.
