MGP Caliper Covers:

Anybody have any experience or opinions on MGP Caliper Covers:

http://www.calipercovers.net/

I was thinking about putting these on my F10 only to hide the hideous calipers and help contain the brake dust.

Unlike other cheap glue-on caliper covers, these seem to be high quality:
  • MGP Caliper Covers are laser cut from 6061-T6 aerospace aluminum.
  • Bridge union is TIG welded for strength.
  • Graphics applied using proprietary CNC high speed engraving techniques.
  • Hydraulically formed to fit OEM brake caliper configuration.
  • Patented stainless steel fastening system is secured with locking nut.
  • High quality powder coated finish for all-weather toughness and durability.

Pricing and options for a full set is as follows:
  • Standard Caliper Covers Black or Red with MGP Logo Engraved in Silver, or Satin with MGP Logo Engraved in Black = $200.00
  • Engraving in Red, White, Blue, or Yellow +$20.00
  • BMW Logo Engraved in lieu of MGP Logo +$70.00
  • Custom Graphics Engraving +$140.00
  • Factory Match Paint +$100.00

My 1st thoughts:
  • Red would look like a Brembo wannabe.
  • Factory Match Paint for my Alpine White car would not look good and would be too hard to keep clean.
  • ///M Logo for the Custom Graphics Engraving might be good on a true M Car, but not an M-Sport (even with the ///M Logo already on the rims).

Thus, I was thinking of going with just Black covers with the BMW Logo in Silver or White or Satin covers with the BMW Logo in Black.

What do you think?
  • The Caliper Covers are cheap looking.
  • Good, but not worth the money.
  • Do it, and if so, which color combo?
