    So having seen some lovely pictures of red calipers from our Aussie friends on this forum and with this generating generating massive jealousy that we can't have them speced in the UK, I wondered if anyone knew any reputable company in the south of the UK that could paint them after I get my car? I don't want to do it myself as I wouldn't know where to start and my attention to detail is shocking so I'd likely arse it up anyway

    Any help?

    parts exist in ETKA, don't know how much they cost but maybe better than painting them ?
