It was time for me to change brakes. The brake dust on e66 e65 bimmers is very BAD. They throw way too much brake dust and no matter how much you polish your wheels after a short drive the wheels will turn black. So the brakes I went with was Akebono dustless brake pads. They work great, no problems at all. I recommend it for everyone.

While i was changing the brakes I decided to paint the brake calipers. The stock brakes are silver and for some reason I noticed on all the 7's they get rusty in the middle.
I bought duplicolor caliper paint from O'reilly Auto Parts. Under $20 bucks. Painted the brake calipers black, most people paint them red or yellow but I didnt want my brake calipers to standout so I just went ahead and painted them black color. Many colors Available and this Stuff works great, the kit has everything you need to get the job done.
