    Just painted my E55 W210 brake calipers

    Had my local body shop re-paint my calipers, wasn't sure if would make much difference as the wheels pretty much cover them! But after picking them up today I am pretty pleased with the results despite the costs! Will probably refurbish the wheels next, luckily only one of them has any kerb...

    Plastic bumpers – painted?

    Sorry if this seems a dumb question but I’ve never owned a car with colour coded plastic bits before… I’m sure someone here can tell me if the plastic body parts are sprayed the same as the rest of the car paintwork or manufactured as colour coded…I’ll probably want to replace my rear bumper...
