Haven't seen those but actually tempted to give them a shot in black. I do like the idea of coberico the ugly rears.

I wouldn't put those on my car, but that comes down to personal taste.

I would powdercoat the factory calipers red so it looks OEM. You can also add the AMG logo in as well.

Frowned upon by a lot of members here.
Fake cosmetics don't go over well.

I've seen them on other cars, and it looks really tacky/cheap. Painting them red is more expensive, but thats the only way i'd want to change them.

looks stupid. paint or bust. honestly the silver stock calipers really dont look bad and certainly better than the covers. but to each their own.

Agree with the others on here...paint em, or leave em. The covers just don't look right!

Full disclosure, I painted mine red and they look good, if you ask me.

Can you share/post/PM where you sourced the new AMG stickers you used on the front calipers? About to start getting quotes to get mine custom painted soon.

I've used G2 Brake Caliper paint with great success in the past. You can totally DIY the project and it should last a long time.

I have to agree with the others! Paint is the only way to go.

Question for you guys.
On silver colored calipers do you think white or black decals would look better?
