Do you need breaks? Better question, what are you using car for a dd, track car, or weekend warrior?

Yes I am ready to change my breaks and the calipers are looking aged so figured I would paint them or just upgrade to cobra's. I have two cars, this is just a project I am fixing up and will be a full bolt on car.

If you wanna spend more than 8$, go with the cobra. If you just want the looks for cheap, spray paint it.

Its not really about the looks. Just noticed mine should be painted or replaced soon and my one car has cobra brakes and this one has GT. I honestly don't notice much of a difference at all in braking.
