They look nice but for 190 I would get some caliper paint and spend the rest of the money on the rear tie bar or strut tower brace from RRM.

Will 3M tape even hold up under heat? Maybe.....

I can't see any benefit to having covers really..... just paint them

if your gonna get cover's at least get the "brembo" looking ones, thoes are ugly, but painting is still the way to go, unless your gonna replace your calipers for the real deal.......just my 2 cents

It's a novel idea, but I wouldn't spend $190, or even close to $190 for these. I might drop $50 on a set of 4 for the sake of saving on the work done vs. repainting my calipers. No way I'm spending 4 times that much.

**EDIT: Save that, they're held on by the always awesome '3M Tape'. I wouldn't spend $5 on these.
