Anyways, I'm just wondering If it's really worth it, I don't race and I just don't like the look of the stock Calipers, but I don't want to spend $500 on Brembo's just to have the calipers.
Brembo brakes have a much firmer feel and a lot less fade. Fading was my biggest disappointment with the stock v6 brakes. The $500 I spend included everything; bigger rotors, calipers/pads and brake lines. Just check the forum for other v6 owners who upgraded to the brembo's. I think you'll find the general consensus to be very positive.

ok, let me clarify. I need caliper covers. I cannot afford a whole Brembo kit. No one can convince me of not buying caliper covers, I just need help. I am buying them online, and I am looking on eBay. They have different sizes for caliper covers. Does a 2010 2LT RS Camaro with 20's have small, medium, or large brakes. If anyone knows this, that would be REALLY helpful. I appreciate everyone's enthusiasm (especially chicagobulls yelling at us), but this was my original question, and it has not been answered yet.

Maybe you could try asking the vendor...

Take a look at these. I don't have them, but there are a few options out there. I think RPI also sells some and they are a vendor here.

What's with all the negativity about caliper covers? It's no different than any other appearance mod. Good grief.
