ok yes i know theres going to be a lot of people who are going to say their fake and gay etc but i think they look better than painting your calipers

but since they're pretty much glued on with sikaflex when its time to change pads what do you do? have to snap them off?

discuss please :)

More importantly do you trust plastic and glue on you brake calipers? The devices integral in stopping your car. Do you think the chance of them adversely affecting your brakes is worth it, just to achieve some supposed looks?

As above, you run the chance of the covers heating your pads/rotor more than they should, which may lead to warping of your rotor which you do not want. I was looking at them myself a while back. Just paint your calipers black and save the possible issues

While any adverse affects on braking are very unlikely, these covers are gayer than AIDS.

Brembo brake covers on standard PBR brakes.

If you want cool looking brakes, buy the real thing. It's like putting a GTR badge on a standard non turbo skyline. Like putting a GTS badge on an executive commodore. You want the look, fork out and buy the real thing.
