I would ask Nissan, personally I don't see why it would as long as you didn't get paint on the inside. I know quite a few people who have painted their calipers to match their wheels, especially with the 4 and 5 spoke open alloys.

It would only affect the warranty if you have to make a claim on the part (obviously..) - in this case Nissan would make a judgement as to whether the mods have contributed to the failure.


For example, there could be a risk that any solvent used to clean the part before painting could attack the piston seals or paint could obstruct the operation... but if the failure mode was fatigue to the casting then you would probably be OK.. but it's decidedcase-by-case I believe..

I think given that it is something that depends on the surfaces being right, and paint could easily affect that and its function, I certainly wouldn't risk it. Even if they fail and paint wasn't a contributing factor, I can see them blaming it on that anyway.

I think we can assume that algarchitorena wouldn't be painting thedisks or pads...
