I think they're worth it! Looks clean, keeps the rims a bit cleaner from brake dust.

I thought about them for a while but they were very expensive but liked the look . I wound up painting them for a fraction of the price and they look a lot better than the covers IMO Click image for larger version

Better off painting your calipers and getting power stop rotors to get more bite when you brake.

Paint the calipers. Cheaper and personal gratification.

Getting them painted right is easier said than done, u would have remove, clean and mask correctly.

Sorry no photo but it looks like the rest. I am LAZY, so after they arrived, my mechanic installed them. If you have the time and patience, paint them otherwise, Black or Red?

Bottom line is they're cheesy. They make it appear (from a distance) that you have a big brake kit. Solid appearance, fake rivets, lettering, etc. Might as well get these for 15 bucks and save some money.



So either paint, powder coat, or get real big brakes. (JMHO of course)

ID:	148521search for some lightly used ones and customize them to your desire w/o taking your car out of commission . I'm still keeping my rear caliper cover, I just customized it. U can use your imagination on what I'm gonna do with the Brembo caliper

I have a 2014 on order with Brembo brakes. Does anyone know what color the calipers come? The salesman thought either black or red. Thanks

I think Brembo isn't an option on the automatics, I could be wrong tho. But it's not a huge deal, u can get some factory take offs on eBay, they're like new. I'm getting rid of my front caliper covers very soon, I'm gonna customize these I purchased used, I hope to do a similar look to this one, but in red with black lettering Click image for larger version

I think Ford offered brembo's on the 13-14 auto's. I'll just buy some later, focused on wheels and tires right now.

Get the G2 caliper paint and Brembo decals from e bay. The G2 is easy to apply and looks like powder coat.
