Maybe Brembo doesn't have very good control over their color recipe, or maybe it's just my X4MC that front and rears are different colors, but kind of bummed about this.

The search continues.
Important to note that the front brakes are made by Brembo but the rears are made by TRW (OEM supplier for a lot of different brands). Also the finish on the rear calipers is much rougher, which can also affect the appearance of the color match.
