    Brake Calipers

    Hey everyone! What is the best way to change the caliper color of the OEM calipers for b8.5? I was thinking of either powder coating, painting, or a "brake caliper cover". What would last the longest and look the best?

    Here is what was shared with me for a brake caliper cover, https://www.calipercovers.com/custom...9uxj1yZWHKEisp

    The rear calipers are the issue. There's just no way to make them look good painted, in my opinion.

    Please tell me that you're not seriously considering a fake cover to put over your calipers. It's right up there with fake chrome stock-on vents.

    They sell high temp paint for calipers in most auto parts stores.
