2015 Black BMW X1 -Wheel and Caliper Powder Coating


Need some help with the community.
Here's my current scenario:
->Black wheel glossy paint which is starting to chirp/deteriorate
->1 Wheel Rear is warp and Bent
->Can't proceed with tire rotaion as the vibration issue will come back once I do tire rotation

->Powder Coating all 4 wheels , calipers and include wheel repair for bent/warp
->Total Cost: $370 Wheel Powder Coating
$550 Caliper
total $920 including mount/dismount,balancing wheels and disassemble/assemble caliper with brake bleeding
lead time 2 days car drop off
->50$-80$ per wheel for bent/warp repair
note: Inspection will be done to ensure if only 1 or other wheel needs repair

Supplier: https://www.facebook.com/CPCPOWDERCOATING/
Location: Crest Hill Illinois

Concern: ->Caliper Powder Coating (panning neon gree,red ,or orange need suggestions)
->Brake Fluis contamination with the caliper powdered coated already?will it be affected
->Car still with warranty and maintenance plan with rear brake disc and pad due for replacement,front rotor and brake pad was just replace recently
->Is the 920$ plus repair worth it?
->Dealer Warranty Voided?
->Anyone from Chicago have tried CPC?
Please see my car picture:

I think the calipers are a waste of money. They aren’t very good looking. I painted mine with high temp silver so it just looks clean. $8 per spray can and I bought two. I would not repair those wheels either... if I own your car I put those $1000 into some nicer wheels. However if you like your wheels I think it’s a great deal money-wise.
