I thought I'd share a couple pics of my STS. Just purchased a set of caliper covers from MGP. Give some opinions.

The stock non-Brembo brakes are the ugliest part of these cars. Well, except maybe for that flat black tail pipe shroud, or the early stick XM/GPS antennae. And since the calipers are quite visible they just scream for some kind of help.

If I knew ( & trusted) a place that did powder coating, I'd do mine in an instant. As for covers, I'd lean toward the silver or a near body-matching color. I do like that places option for the Cadillac script on the fronts.

macmuse I agree with the silver, but too late. As far as the script at the fronts they were suppose to be like that, but they made an error which they are sending new front with the script change. At first I didn't like them, but they grew on me quite quick. Easy to clean, easier to do, cheaper and has no contact to heated elements to break down paint or any coating. Regardless of the source of powder coating I've heard they will still break down.

what ever floats your boat. Not my cup of tea, but i'm also not a flashy guy. Sometimes I think the STS is too flashy for me as is.
