Exclamation My First MOD! MGP Caliper Covers

I highly recommend the MGP Caliper Covers, good quality and they fit very well on the Front Calipers for my '09 650i. The back calipers take a little work to get them straight. I don't think it is the cover it is just the way the caliper is made. But them make a bold difference. The Red with the BMW letters in black cost me $270. A good deal compared to changing or painting the calipers.

Looks great.

Talk about a rare color on the car too. I don't think I've seen a red 6er coupe. Is that Imola Red?

Hey, I know this thread is old--but where did you order the MGP calipers with the BMW logo? I have always seen them without the BMW logo (and only the MGP logo).

Your help is greatly appreciated!

The name of the company is MGP Calipers, but there website is http://calipercovers.com/. I chose a custom logo with the BMW.

^^Thanks for the info---where on the website does it let you customize? When I went on it, it only gave me the option for MGP logo, and not the BMW logo or one of my own logos/pics...

They are very slow to respond to customer inquries. When they did finally respond, they refered me to custom order covers from ultrarev.com. Hope this helps.

Hey, so you're saying you order the MGP calipers with the BMW logo from a website other than MGP? MGP referred you to another vendor?

I am confused.

Yup. I was confused, too. I was looking for them for my Z4 back in February and went to their website and inquired about a special order. They referred me to ultrarev.com for special orders. Ultrarev also has a presense on eBay.
