    Default Caliper covers

    I usually paint mine but wanted know if anyone has used these or anything similar.

    Sorry JMO but id rather paint them and add some VX or Opel stickers than add them. I think they are tacky.

    The calipers might not be sexy 4 pot's but they still come up great with some paint plus I have seen these covers and they do look just like covers IMHO

    They are ok but they stick on and have to be unstuck every time you want to do something to the brakes. They are only plastic and crack when you try to take them off,,,thus I just left them off and painted the calipers
