Austin Yellow on Top of Austin Yellow (Heavy in Photos)

A few months ago, I had the idea of getting my calipers repainted after seeing a fellow forum member's F80 at Cars and Coffee. He had his YAS Marina Blue F80's calipers repainted in Pearl Yellow. Don't get me wrong, the OEM brakes are beautiful but I just wanted a slight change.

I had the idea of having my OEM Brake Calipers paint matched to Austin Yellow. I pitched the idea over to the guys at Euromotive Performance of having the brakes done. They were just as excited as I was since we've never seen a paint matched Austin Yellow caliper.

Below are some photos before the painted match calipers.












There are many ways to paint calipers but I wanted this to last. The staff at Euromotive Performance followed Brembo's OEM specifications on the paint process. There's far cheaper ways on changing you brake caliper's color such as using a small paint brush to paint them on or taping up the wheel well and spraying them on the car.

The OEM calipers were sanded down, primed, and painted with Standox paint (OEM Paint) which included Standox clear coat. I had the idea of having the "M" logo in black instead of the OEM silver since it stands out more (High Temperature Stickers). The silver would have blended in with the calipers. As you can see this process needed the shop to take apart the calipers to ensure it was painted correctly and not in the areas where its not needed.























After they placed one of the wheels on the car, I was in awe




I also had the guys at Euromotive Performance paint match my front reflectors. I tried to capture a decent amount of shots from different lighting and angles. As you know BMW paint changes in these various aspects. But let me know what you guys think. I know Austin Yellow is a hit or miss with people, but I love it.

They actually looks pretty darn good. How long did it take ? I assume it was a few days.

Love it! Looks perfect.

I have a YMB F80 and nearly went with Phoenix Yellow (similar to AY) on my calipers but wanted to tone it down just a bit so I went with a bright silver - and the black ///M logo just like you did. Turned out beautifully and really makes them shine versus the dark blue OEM that to me just clashed with the YMB.

Nice work! Reflectors look great too. AY was my #2 choice, it really just came down to the right car on which color I went with (YMB vs. AY).

Bright silver is an awesome choice and great color combo on YMB. Yeah the black "M" logo makes it stand out on either set of colors.

Ive been wanting to get the reflectors done for a while since it ruins all front end photos I take haha.

Thank you, It really changes the way it looks IMO. I wish I had the carbon Ceramics but not willing to spend that type of money. #WeddingToSaveUpFor lol.

Thanks man. It took about 3 days. From what I was told, the base coats needed some time to cure before the clear coat/M logo was placed on.

I agree with the calipers, I painted my Austin Yellow about 2 weeks after getting my car. I feel it fits the car a lot better.

Agreed, The blue calipers are beautiful but I just wanted something a little more to be eye catching.

Yeah especially with the 437M's (Black). Dark brakes and dark wheels make it hard to appreciate. So glad I went with this
