Brembos For Super Cheap!!!!!!!! NOT

I'm lying.

Was cruising around Santa Monica with Mr. Adam today and stopped a BMW which "seemed" to have bright brembos under his custom whatever wheels. I looked back and adam shook his head. "Bro, those are covers."



I really hope no one on the forums gets these...

Gave me a REALLY good laugh though. Hope it's not a repost, haha.

I guess if you wanted red calipers, this is a cheap way to do it.

If you got big brakes.... OKAY!
BBK > small discs /w covers.

IMO, I'd just paint stock calipers if anything.

It wouldn't be as bad if they didn't say brembo on it

The seller isn't even trying to bullshit their benefits. It's a "you know why you're buying this and so do we" product.

I was thinking about it because the oem 335 calipers are ugly as fack!! I dont track the car often so needing bigger/better brakes is not a must.

I never got to order them because I'm scared itll look too riced out.

If these didn't say brembo and just said bmw or something they would be less poser, I might even consider rocking them. And maybe paint them black or yellow.

+1 Save for the Brembo BS on them I would definitely put them on my car. Especially since painting your stock calipers will void the warranty on them.

edit: as matter of fact. Im going to email this guy and ask if he has an option for plain, no logo covers. If he does... I don't give a good poop what you think, Im buying them...

edit #2: nevermind, they're plastic and you have to use a silicone glue to affix them to your stock caliper.. Meaning they'd be a biznatch to get off..

Pics? I'm planning to paint mine soon, but can't decide between black or silver.
