Brake Caliper Covers for X3

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hi - saw these caliper covers on Summit Racing for BMW X3. Has anyone tried these yet? They come in Red and Black, but cannot get BMW logo custom as yet, just the manufacturer logo.

I wouldn't use them. Seems like putting a hubcap over alloy rims and you won't be fooling anyone with those...Why not have your calipers painted instead?

There are much nicer, more realistic versions, available on eBay for far, far less, if you must. But, please, don't.

Caliper Covers -

Thanks for everyone's feedback; however, I think going back to the tried and proven method - painting my calipers - allot more time/effort; however, they won't be falling off either

If you don't want to waste time, have a shop do it, i'm sure its about 80 USD there for you guys?
They do a nice grinding, getting off the rust, painting, protecting, clear coat, etc.

It seems like these would hurt caliper cooling.
