I've been contemplating a new color for mine.
My car is SO on bronze wheels so I'm not sure what color. Maybe match them to the paint and go SO as well.

My car is Black Sapphire and needless to say the blue isn't an optimal color. I do think I will go with the ///M red at some point.

Nice - how much did it run you to have that done. Was thinking of swapping to Red w Brembo logo.

Any recommendations as to what color the calipers should be on a Frozen Dark Grey Metallic w/ Bronze rims?

I could always go with black, no harm no foul, I just wonder if a dif. color would fit better.

w bronze rims I think black would be best other wise too many clashing colors. If you did silver or black wheels that would open you up for other color calipers.

Where are you located? If in Southern California I have a great guy for the refinishing.

I'm thinking of doing like a flat grey or a red.

Car is SGM

Any side pics? Trying to figure out what color to paint mine. Also, how much did powder-coating run you for all four calipers? Also, also, what color red is that? Doesn't seem as bright as the Brembo red (a proprietary red that is supposedly very close to Porsce and a Fiat).

Thanks!

Looks awesome. Have you thought of doing the bmw emblem in gloss red and black to match? I think they'd look sweet on your ride!

This was the Orange I had. Chevy orange from autozone VHT caliper paint.

Took the //M sticker off as I think the car has enough of those already.

after you tell us the color you painted your calipers, please tell us your age.

i'm keeping my calipers OEM.. if they break or i upgrade id consider a change in color

but in my humble opinion brembo gave us a beautiful caliper design special for the f10

doing such to your f10 will look like you are a wannabe boyracer that just got out of hondas

you cant really go up much from OEM.. other than an upgrade to OEM carbon ceramic.. $10k where stopping distance is still the same but brake fade is diminished greatly
