Finally got around to getting my rotors done..

I decided to keep it classy and just spray them silver with the black BMW on it as its not too loud or rice burner looking ... What do you guys think?

They look awesome!!! Did you take the caliper completely off? And how hard was it to do?

Looks good. My friends keep telling me to do the calipers/rotors on my X5, since they're all rusty colored now.

im not quite sure what process the body shop used to do it. I do know they took the calipers off to spray them and the rotors they left on the car to spray .. I really think it looks amazing as w the rusty look gone it looks so clean and elegant. I didn't want to do red because I think that belongs on an M CAR or something..
