I forget what the name of the paint is, i thinks its called japlan, b&q sell it in various colours, 2 coats will last for ever, especially if the calipers are cleaned ,and degreased

I Used normal paint on my previous golf. Was fine, no problem with normal paint. But it wont give a deep shine or anything....well mine didnt, Dont Brembos have a finished polished look?

My mate used Umbrol Model paint on his calipers on his 5 series beemer - been done about 18 months and no sign of peeling or chipping. Make sure the calipers are fully cleaned and degreased - brake and clutch cleaner does a good job of this - and it evaporates so doesnt react with the paint . . . .. .
