    Hi just done mine, just go to hobbycraft and get a little tin of humbrol red gloss model paint costs about 2 quid and does all four calipers.
    I've done this on every car I've had and it never flakes off.
    Hope this helps.

    I'm in the process of painting my calipers at the minute. I've got a black E46 330CI which has just had new brake discs and pads all round. The calipers were a bit rusty so i bought myself a tin of red caliper paint from Halfords and painted them myself. It's taken quite a while to do a half decent job, probably because i left the calipers on and masked around them, but i'm quite pleased with the end result. I've got one more left to do tomorrow and then it's just a case of getting the alloys refurbished and giving the car a proper wash and it should look a hundred times better.....fingers crossed anyway.
