cool - I just figured that painting the rear caliper might accentuate the fact that they're quite small.

Looks cheap. Probally wont clear the IS 350 front brakes. Plastic? Wouldnt that melt due to heat? just my opinion though. Id take painted calipers over caliper covers any day.

looks cheap?? I saw the brakes (pictures) and it looks OK but not cheap at all. I don't know if it will fit the IS 350 front brakes I will measure acording to what they said. I don't know what type of material is but it will not melt due to the glue (hight temperature). Thanks for your feedback JoshIS408!! I really apreciate it!! I will like to see some more pictures.. and more feedback!!

I have an IS250 and I know that the front calipers are smaller but would it still look good if I painted them??
