    Those are beautiful. To bad they don't come in gold.

    I like them and was hoping someone would respond that has had these MGP covers on their car for a while. My only concerns are:
    1. Can the covers over time slide away from the face of the caliper and start hitting the spokes of the wheels?
    I can't tell if those clips can slid around on the caliper.
    2. Since the covers are held on by those clips, could they rattle and cause brake noise? I remember years ago having to apply that blue "brake quiet" on disk pads to keep them from vibrating and causing squeaking.

    Thanks for all the replies. The Power Stop calipers I pulled up were single piston, my car has the Super Track Pack high performance brakes - BR6P; dual piston calipers.
    I think I’ll try a set of these covers before I’ll attempt to paint. I like that they are smooth and cover the caliper and pad... so hopefully easier to keep clean.
