How do you guys rate these calipers, its a bit later as I have already bought them and waiting for my mechanic to be free hoping it will be this afternoon!

This is all due because my brakes are sticking and they have done this before so change front pads and discs and cleaned calipers that sorted it for a few months ago now its back!

So the solution is change the calipers didnt want to pay £236 for calipers from BMW so went with the PAGID ones any one got these?

Sorry if this dont make sense been up all night on a night shift :sarcastic

Pagid are (were) one of BMW's suppliers, they now mainly use Jurid. I have in my boot right now e46 pagid front calipers, discs and pads as part of the refit. Good quality components - no problems at all on quality...

The calipers are nickel electro plated, worth giving them an alcohol wipe (use cheap vodka if you like) then high temperature prime, top and lacquer. It will never get better than a new caliper so worth spending a little time on it :)
