Is this to be expected with covers, or is this unusual? Haven't had much experience with it.

And for all the other people saying I should have bought the real thing---I don't have the ridiculous amount of money that a set of brembo brakes would cost. This was the best I could do at this point, to get that red look on the brakes.
I really don't have any experience with them, so I can't comment if it's unusual or not.
