I have a question - did you powder coat the stock calipers? If so how did you do it - take them off and send to a shop - or take the car somewhere for them to be done.

I might add Brembos in the future; but in the meantime I like the look of yellow or red calipers with the GTX wheels.

I hear you on the road feel. I just switched out my 18 winters with the 19 summers and there is much more road feedback.
I took my car to a paint/body shop that others and myself have used for our vehicles, so i dropped off my car there in the morning, he took off the calipers, sanded them, primered, 3 coats yellow and cleared. However, the method he used was similar to a powdercoat? He didn't "paint them", per se. Had the car the following afternoon. Looks great although the brake dust can make it look so-so after a week.
