    I have used them on an older car of mine (scooby) and everyone thought they were genuine brembos! They do look good, are easy to keep clean and save time on having to paint your calipers, also make your calipers look much bigger which is a good thing! Lets face it Signumboys motor looked awesome with them!.
    I stuck mine on with some high temp silicone and they didnt budge.
    Think im gonna get some for mine after I get my wheels refurbed

    there ok until they come off and get jammed and lock the brakes up.

    personally, id put nothing onto a brake caliper that will get VERY hot and some of the cheap rubbish you get on ebay cant handle the heat and break off !..

    brilliant when you'v got a car full on the motorway.
