    Looks like MPG brand caliper covers. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    You're way better off just having your calipers painted. Will probably cost less than the covers and looks more natural.

    Painting calipers only cost a few hundred bucks.

    Why would you put that on a 60K car? The fit doesnt look right in the rear as well. Pay a little extra and get it painted. There's shops that paint calipers for 400-500. i paid $500 for mine. Calipers.jpg

    @JohnC,

    That looks Incredible! Love it. Did you go with Gloss Black on the powder coat? Trying to decide on the red....did your guy use Tesla Red or a certain paint code? That red really POPS! Awesome!

    Thanks! I went with Satin Black which is in between matte and gloss. I just told the shop bright red and they knew what I meant.
