Has anyone added MGP caliper covers or other covers to their car. Curious if they hold up or look good. Nice colors other than typical red, too.
Thanks,

And here is where I chime in. Bought my car with calpier covers. They clean easy, and don't seem to attract much dust.




Rear



Front

ALL OVER eBay. Any color, any logo, anything you want. They even have the fake brake fluid lines. Just do a search on brake caliper cover.

I've had mine on my rears for about two years and they look as good as they did when I put them on. They will even do a custom engrave on them if you want. They did not have any covers for the Brembos in the front.

I saw these yesterday on eBay and thought they would look good. But my next thought was, what do I say if someone asks me what brake upgrade I have done?
It seems like a nice cheap appearance upgrade for those who are like me with not too much cash flow to do a full brembo swap and have them powder coated, ect.

Am I the only one who feels this way?

They look good. We're those eBay ones the cheaper type? I saw a set for around $30.

Pac I got the same ones to put on but carbon fiber, did you have to trim any off to fit?

Yep, the front ones. I think if I remember about an inch. Once you put them on the caliper you will see. Real easy to cut, I used dremel tool but I think a wire cutters or sharp scissors would do it. Just first mark area to be cut with sharpie. I used JB Weld. Then put painters tape from the cover to back of caliper, one top, middle and bottom for front. Put tape on snug. Must not drive at least 12 to 15 hrs. Once you take tape off just lightly tug on them.
Before you put on I cleaned caliper and cover (where JB goes on) with alcohol wipes and let dry for 5 min. Then JB on inside cover thick coat and a small on caliper. Have a plastic knife to smooth JB on cover and caliper. Put on cover and tape. JB will drip so if you put wheel on leave a rag inside of the wheel to catch drip.

I'll go ahead and say it: Fake-brembo caliper covers are gayer than a dozen slippery dicks in a My Little Pony bag.

Well that "G" work stopped the conversation. These aren't hondas, go big or stay home.
