I have to say it does look good, but I'm against covers, either get the real thing or just don't. IMO.

Nevertheless good work, looks really nice with the red seats

They are real Brembo BBK. I bought them used off of a fellow member of e90post.com. I was going to get a shop to do them but I ended up installing them myself since I had a day off work yesterday.

I just put Brembo caliper covers as a joke lol. I just to see if anyone can tell the difference.

Its a Brembo GT BBK. I just put Brembo caliper covers as a joke just to see who could tell the difference.

I guess some people really couldn't tell difference. I'm going to edit the title because I don't want to be known as the guy who has Brembo caliper covers lol.

Thanks.. No track events planned yet. Last year I promised a good friend of mine that this year we would be hitting the track on our motorcycle's so Most of my track time this season will probably be on my crotch rocket lol.

Car looks great! I'm digging the style 269's. (Just wondering, are they OEM/replica???)

ps - spare the felt on your pool table! Stop putting items on it loool, gotta keep the leveling as well as you can

Thanks man I appreciate it, and yes the rims are OEM.

LOL and the felt on my pool table is actually still in great condition. The only reason I put that box up there was to take the picture because my wife wouldn't let me put it on the dining room table lol. When I first moved into my condo the people who delivered the pool table from my old house actually taught me how to disassemble and reassemble the pool table and how to properly level it. So luckily if it were to go uneven I can re-level it.

They look great, now, how do they perform and stack up against the originals. I know fade will be non-existant. Is the famous semi-soft E9X feeling absent like the older beemers? Also, just noticed the snow on the ground, hope you had a nice heated garage when you installed em! Burrrr-nothing like working on vehicles in the snow.

Please let us know.

Mark
