Prior to selling the 987 i did the calipers (let me be honest, i had a local shop do the calipers) with a G2 kit using yellow and then I replaced the Porsche logo with a carbon fiber Porsche logo. Against the black car, with 19" Carrera S, it was amazing looking. Ideally, powdercoating is the way to go, but you have two issues to deal with - not having your car for up to a week (vs 24 hours for G2 kit) and several hundreds $$$ more in cost. I couldn't be without the car for more than a day when I did it, and had used the kit before on other vehicles with good results, so was happy with outcome. I'll post some pix when I get home

I'll eventually do the same to the BMW - the calipers on the BMW aren't as large as the Porsche, so the outcome won't be as super cool.
