Same size on calipers between bmw M6 and bmw 645?

As the title says, is the size the same? painted calipers looks good on the bmw m6, Im about to paint mine on my black bmw 645 cab (M6 look). I prefer gold paint, but if the calipers are smaller than the M6 then maybe I should paint them more neutral...

Thanks for the answer, Im awaiting my M-stickers. Black looks good but if Im going to take the time to paint I want the calipers to stand out a little I think. Gold is a nice color imo as a contrast to black, and it doesnt stand out as much as red, yellow etc.

But I have also black and silver under consideration.... decisions decisions...

Paint..

I agree...the only issue is the calipers are not as pretty as say a Brembo or a MB or even Infinity its the only thing bmw has just started doing they stop on a dime and give you nine cents change but......in the end its a matter of what you are going to like so if gold is what you like then do it...lots of luck my friend I'm sure they will look great

Amen to that my friend, it leans more and more towards silver or black. BMW Calipers arent the nicest around as you put it (except for the newest models, especially M-models)

Yea well you get that for 123,000...lol... but it looks like there coming around. I'm telling you bud do a search on his car the title was like "painted and cleaned wheels & calipers" he really did an amazing job and they look 100% better then the dulled out silver. I think he's in the UK and he has if my memory serves me correctly M-3 wheels on it.

A nice sand blast and degreasing will clean those puppies so the paint will stick solid
