I don't think I would get any of them. Why not just use G2 caliper paint to paint the stock calipers? And def. black... why bring crazy attention to a stock braking system, w/ a red caliper?

Just my $0.02.

I think it actually looks pretty good but price seems too high.
I wouldn't spend around $200 for plastic looking covers which sticks to the caliper with 3M tape.

Why not just paint your OEM calipers?

Just paint them (I did) and they still look just as good as the day I did them. Caliper covers are a rip off for something that's plastic and costs a couple hundred.

Thanks for all the advice guys! I haven't got time to strip my calipers and paint them, that is why i am ordering the caliper covers for now. If you are interested in a set give Eddie a shout at www.formulaimage.com

They cost me $189.00 plus shipping. I ordered the black ones.

I'm with you ALL ON U. SOME peeps have to work for a living and don't have time to do stuff like painting calipers. Do what you CAN for now until you get what you WANT
