I bought a set of those before and they looked really lame and gimmicky...especially on a 60k car. So I returned them! Just my opinion man...

Has some video of some caliper covers. You can get them for $200, takes 10 minutes to install. If you want them to look better (custom engraving, different paint) it costs at least another $140. I think I'd rather just paint them, unless they can laser in the ///M logo.

Actually I think there may be some hope for these caliper covers after all. They can do the ///M logo. That combined with your chosen paint/finish, these may look great on the right wheel. Go to 6:05 and check the logo out.

MGP Caliper Covers is the brand...I had them for my SS and it wasn't the same. But you can find them at www.summitracing.com or on their website.

I know what you mean about the unfinished look though. Although nicer painted; I wish we had that smooth Brembo look...

You did a really nice job with that. I'm debating doing the same thing. Any thoughts on which color I should go with? I was thinking red just to have a contrast to the dark car color, but red might be a bit too bright.
