its possible but i dont think they would if you maintain them well and keep them clean and make sure everything is tight every once and a while. they seem pretty sturdy though.

^^ that's not nice!! Any aftermarket stuff for our cars isn't discounted, in fact, just about everything I buy for the car is over $100 a pop... It just depends on how much you're willing to go if you like something... and I like these... I don't need brembos - I'm going nowhere - fast... :nogrinner

I'm definitely not on here to bash anyone, I love this site for all of the helpful info that everyone here provides, but I'm with gphasagt on this one. I don't think he was trying to be mean, but ever since I read the group buy thread, I think he feels the same way me and probably a few other members do, kinda insulted. I first thought it was a typo, but realized it wasn't. I cannot fathom how they can try to sell these for $189, let alone normally $200 bucks !!!! Just because they won some SEMA award doesn't mean you can jack the price all up, when in all reality, they are just shaped, painted pieces of aluminum with two mounting tabs on the back, is that REALLY worth $200 hard earned dollars?!? I definitely think not. Again, I am not on here to bash anyone, they have the right to sell them for whatever price they want, I just HAD to express my opinion on this, after all, isn't that what forums are for ?!... AFM is still the best!

It is great that we can all express our opinions, isn't it? ... I just thought the "highway robbery" comment was a little rude, being we're posting in "their" area... that's all.

See, it's like someone coming into my house and saying they don't like my drapes... which my response would be "If you don't like them, don't buy 'em"...

MGP Caliper Covers

Our Caliper Covers are attached using a spring loaded stainless steel clip. Basically the clip applies pressure to the bolt keeping the bolt
secure, somewhat like a lockwasher but more advanced and secure.

The MGP Caliper Covers have been tested for four years. We've had our covers on vehicles with more than 80K miles with no failures.

As far as "Highway Robbery" as someone has stated, our prices for our caliper covers have remained the same for several months even after winning a SEMA award. MGP has not jacked up our prices. Our Caliper Covers are made from 6061 T-6 aluminum, TIG welded and high speed laser engraved, we don't use a Dremel or a hacksaw. Our Caliper Covers are also powder coated which insures durability. We know our product is made to a very high standard and we feel our price is very fair for the materials and production that goes into
our Caliper Covers.

I take back the highway robbery comment. 6061 aluminum is good stuff and it does sound like they're a quality product. I still think they're overpriced, but then again so are most things people buy for these cars (my $140 plastic panel between my taillights for example) so it's all in supply and demand I guess since these are pretty unique and I haven't seen anyone else making something similar. They do look great though

They seem pretty neat, definitly an innovation. Can't really bash em unless you've tried em. Highway Robbery is the $339 for a Caliper with "Cobra" written on it for my 03 Cobra When an aftermarket caliper is less than half that.

Remember in November. . . Vote them out!

First of all the word "Cobra" isn't "Written" on it. It is cast into the caliper process during the manufacturing process in Australia where people can afford to buy a car and have insurance. It is not some aftermarket caliper that may fit 12 applications manufactured somewhere where the workers will never be able to buy a car or even see Batman The Dark Knight. If your brakes don't matter to you then you probably shouldn't be driving. As to the pricing you can buy the ORIGINAL 10th Anniversary Red Cobra calipers front AND rear for $40 more than you stated WITH brand new Ford brake pads that certainly don't come with the "Half price" ones.

Wow, Pull the red hot poker out of your @$$. Aftermarket from autozone are around $130.00. I looked at the red ones, but I like the OEM ones. I didn't say I would put cheap ones on my car did I? Looks like someone has something to prove, Go E-Thugs!

I wanna know how these actually keep the caliper cooler and dissipate the heat? It seems like it would hold heat in.
