Would any of you ever put these on ure car?

Hear me out first.

They actually don't look half bad...and the current calipers aren't the best looking things either...Plus it beats spending so much on brakes especially if you don't plan on racing since the current brakes are actually very good (just don't look good) But the question is, "Would you put them on your car?" for 12 bucks i was considering it honestly lol but i bet they fall apart really easily. Just thought id share.

Nah....

Just keep the OEM calipers the way they are and call it a day.

Please don't. You are literally covering the real caliper, which will likely make it harder for heat to dissipate.

To each their own, but if you're looking for an opinion, I think caliper covers are extremely ricey.

Not gonna do it. It was just a random flash in my mind after I came across them on ebay looking for CF lips ( I drive on highway a lot so all CF lips I buy get destroyed by rock chips or bad luck so this way i dont feel bad when it happens)

To be honest if I did it I would not be able to look at my car without feeling a little revulsion.
This is something you expect to see on a 15year olds Honda civic.

It would be awesome to get this and then that fake turbo whoosh sound thing. And then put a bumpin system and lower on airbags with some sweet 22's.

Why do you want to install them? They look fake from miles away!!! What's your point? Am I missing something here? Would you install BBK center wheel cover on BMW wheels? Would you put a Pirelli sticker in a Michelin or Conti tire? Again I must be missing something here? Its a BIIIIGGGGGG NONO!!!!! for me

The only cool thing about them that I wish Brembo actually did was have raised lettering. However, for those of us with BBK and super tight clearance...that would suck. Haha
