Anybody still do this ?
Yes, but not every year.
I did on my last car but in silver as the calipers looked shabby. On my current car the calipers have remained silver so no need to paint.
I did the rear calipers on the Mini red to match the front ones, but the 2 series has blue calipers anyway so no need
nope, left mine as was..
Nope, they came in a rather fetching blue from the factory and always clean up like new.
Paint ... no way!
Mine are the Blue M Sport ones and match the Estoril Blue of the car , so no .
Already painted in the factory
any one with CSL wheels n painted calipers
Mine also come ready painted.
No, simply hide them away with a bit of carefully applied waxoyl, to prevent rusting.
Yes there is a caliper hidden in there somewhere.
Aye, but the winters are on now, so it's Wolfstyle rims with gold [faded, see my previous post ] against the [mucky Saphirre Black ].
It's a bit like "do you still beat your wife?". Never have, never will.

Blue caliper paint it is then
I prefer my calipers "au naturel"
Pretty much every component I touch on my car gets cleaned and painted before re fitting , even new stuff which often means - fit to confirm it works, remove and paint then re fit.... drives those around me daft.
My car is often abandoned in lay-bys and car parks while I swan off taking pictures so in the case of the BM it is left looking standard to stop anyone noticing it , silver ish callipers and standard wheels etc..
Mine are gloss black, polished and don't tend to get ropy. Helen's 320d came resplendent with those fetching little blue numbers. Which, when the diesel engine clatters into life, makes them and the 19" staggered wheels seem a bit silly. Don't half look good though.
