M5 Style Caliper Covers

Does anyone know of M5 style Blue caliper covers that'll fit the F10? I think they look really clean and want to change how the stock ones look.

I have seen them painted blue - looks good to me but the owner of the car doesn't like the look and is re-painting them black.

The OEM M5 front brakes were priced out to somewhere in the 2K range weren't they? Not a bad deal at all...

I hope you meant replacing your existing front brakes with the M5 calipers and rotors. I believe that is possible for around $3k. Long Tran has done this, with custom caliper brackets.

replacing with m5 brakes kit or brembo BBK would be awesome.. but if u decide just to have the looks, this would be a cheap alternative http://www.calipercovers.com
