Caliper paint code

Hi guys,
Does somebody know the paint color code of the gold caliper of the M6 competition. The caliper are looking very dirty old and not nice anymore. So want to repaint them.
Thank you.

Interested in this info as well - I plan to purchase a m6 gc here shortly and always wanted to paint the caliper the gold color that comes on the ceramic brakes.

Dont be a poser. Just stick with the original color. Don't we already have enough wannabes putting ///M stickers on base cars already?

The mockery came from the hurt in your butt. You see how lame you come off right? I can just imagine your screechy annoying voice saying "it's an M6 but not a CCB M6 you poser"

Seems to me you're the only one with sand in your Suzy. You're probably one of those fellas that thinks if you paint calipers gold and put an M badge on a 325, we'll, what's the difference, it's just how you identify. So yeah, you go, girl.

Haha, geez. I didn't say I was going to get a CCB decal across my windshield, I just prefer the gold color to the blue. I currently have a non poser CLS AMG (selling for the M6 GC) & a Panamera GTS - so I do occasionally get a laugh out of seeing M/AMG badges on non M/AMG cars, buut your theory is definitely a stretch.

Haha sure did. Appreciate the info but I think the original question (and mine) was in regards to the CCB gold color.

Then you know how ridiculous it looks. A friend of the family was the service manager for a large MB dealership in NJ, and he'd tell us stories about customers who were so desperate to "be somebody" that they'd but S-badges on C and E class cars. So, my point was: "don't be that guy."

Your comparisons don’t match up. A color vs adding badges of another model &/or sub model. If I wrap my car Ferrari red, am I trying to fool ppl that I own a 488 pista? No. Appreciate the input though - the purpose of this thread has been concluded

Heat resistant decals should do the trick. I would check eBay for starters.
