No, those are the stock calipers which are more of a royal blue.

There is something odd about it that I can't put my finger on.

The 4x4 wheel gap? Or maybe it's just me... For some reason I can't get past that.

Wheel gap is most likely due to shipping blocks.

I agree though with whoever said this color really only works on the E46 M. Kinda mehhh on the M6.

If this is the one in Dallas, I've seen it in person. Looks great, and really suits the car.

I actually LOL'ed on these 2 first comments.

Fog lamps? in the middle of the bumper? on an ///M car? haha

They don't have the covers on the holes becase the car just came off of a truck and that is how they strap the car to the truck so it doesn't fly off...

Love this color, but not on the F13. It works well on all of the generations of an M3 (for me) but not on these larger luxury sports cars like M5, M6, etc.

Car is likely riding high due to the shipping blocks in the springs that keep the suspension from compressing while in transport.

I love this color but am in the air on how i feel about it on the m6. Just my opinion. Maybe if i saw it in person it would help.

Great colour, but I don't think it works that well on 6er.

This is the best ever BMW color IMO. I like it on the M6, but I agree with the above post that something doesn't quite fit. It just works better on an E46. Not complaining, though, I most certainly wouldn't kick this car out of bed.

Has not gone through the shop yet. That's how they arrive from the port.

Amazing color but may date with time. That said, kudos to the owner for making a unique decision.

And I heard what that paint cost - $6000 option

Love it. I hated mine when it first came off the truck, I was like "Oh no WTF did I order" lol. But after some black trim pieces it looks perfect.
