The V6 calipers are tiny and dont look very good just painted; I bought red caliper covers too OP. No issue with fitment with the stock 20" RS wheels, nor with the Havoc wheels I have now. They look pretty awesome as a contrasting color. You can find them 30 bucks cheaper on a certain southern car parts website... hint...

I have them and I've never had a problem with them.

What does a good powdercoat job cost? I was quoted at $600 for complete job (drop off car in the morning, pick up in the afternoon). Caliper covers were $200. Saved myself the $400 but now I'm wondering if I could have found a better price for the powdercoat.

Damn for that price I could have my Wheels, Calipers done and have 200$ in change.

Question - what is the concensus for colors? I have a 2013 2LT/RS Crystal Red Metallic, do I get red (costs more to get exact red). Sure wouldn't put a god awful mismatched color, or Black?

I'm in the same boat with RocknRllr. Same color car and don't want to match the color. A friend of mine who has owned a couple of late 60's camaros told me he would go black with the covers for a more subtle look. I'm thinking either the black or silver but definitely not Red. I'm going to look into the G2 paint option but would like to see how it would look on the V6 Calipers.

I'm happy with my covers too- had many positive comments. 99% of people don't see past the cover to realize it is a cover!

I vote black covers for a red metallic car.

Have them on for 3 years now. They really keep brake dust away and looks very good. No problems whatsoever. Worth the money.

Caliper covers look so cheap in my opinion. For the money you pay for covers you can get yours professional powdercoated
