Yep, but in person Estoril looked closer.

Interlagos was too dark

It's pretty clear it's not any of those.

Try a few different manufacturers, see if they do anything closer?

I tend to agree - considering those Blue calipers are available on any BMW so not necessarily Estoril.

Personally I think it's close enough surely? For those very few times when your calipers are actually clean - and you happen to be in a position to place an un-repainted caliper right next to yours.

Or are you touching up a chip?

F87 M2 - most toys - gone!
F80 M3 - even more toys - gone!

No it's just to match the fronts to my stock rear calipers.

They are getting sent off for a rebuild & to have the casting marks smoothed out, followed by paint.

I think either Estoril or Monte Carlo would be OK given there will be some distance between front & rear, and that they will be behind a set of wheels too.

The guy doing the work thinks Estoril, so going to try that.

You could try the paint cards in Renault, Ford, Mercedes garages. I bet if you did that you would find a perfect match.

I can tell you it's not FORD MATISSE BLUE, as that's what colour my towing eyes are! :(
