I really like your red brake calipers. I might copy.. errm, I mean paint mine too :^)

Really nice car Eric. I originally wanted a silver M3 but could not find one here in the Bay Area. What color is your interior?

Take care.

just kidding, sweet looking car, jsut got mine lowered a bit, and man it makes my rims look HUGE!


the origional interior was cardinal red (yuck) but I bought a grey interior and it looks much better. BTW, when the wheels are clean, the brakes shine off of the rim! I spent about 3 hours with a toothbrush to get 90,000 miles worth of brake dust of the calipers, then used high temp engine paint to paint the calipers. First i used a white base color. then two or three coats of red. I got the paint for like $8 at pepboys, screw that fola tec, this works just as good. Only thing i would do different is take the caliper off the car. I'm lazy and didnt' want to bleed the brakes, so I just taped as much off as possible.
hope this helps
