I don't track my car, so they don't see the max temp the track guys do. But the "Brembo" white stickers on my image in my above post still look the same one year later. They haven't turned yellow or darker.

I did mine while they were still on the car. As another has stated, it takes time to do this. But it came out great & I love the DYI type of cosmetic upgrades.

I did not take off my calipers. left them up with the rotor, and bleed caps taped off. Made sure everything was very clean and prepped well, and then just painted. First layer looks rough. Second layer looks pretty good. Third layer looks even better. Not sure about the others, but the G2 caliper paint is self leveling, so the brush won't leave streaks....it looks factory finish.

The stickers are advertised as high temp (not really sure about that, but that's what it says). Mine still look great, but I don't track my car.

If you can find the exact color you want and have the time to paint, go for it. I put these on as a quick solution for my dislike of the grey calipers. Easy install. I'm not in love with them but they'll do for now.

Had covers, they lasted a week. They didn't live up to the standard of the car and they caught a rock which squealed like a banshee when it pushed the cover a smidge closer to the rim. Freak thing but it happened. Full of crud and only 200 miles. They do keep the wheels cleaner but not for me.
