$199, not too bad. I wonder how well they prevent rust/brake dust, however.

I like the look - but wouldn't they hold some heat in the calipers?

Very nice! But they would be on the bottom of the list of purchases right now

I'd like to see some close ups on C5's ANY?

Thanks,Matt

Do U plan on offering them in Mel Yellow down the road?? Also I have shaved my rear calipers to accomondate the Baer rotors 14" was wondering if this covers would create a spacing problem?? How thick are they?

I'm in for the Yellow ones when offered.
Thanks
FRED

My order is in for RED. I was going to paint my calipers but this is a much better alternative. Thank you Josh.
