Sure here is a couple.
It was well worth the money for them. It took literally 5 minutes to put them on after taking the wheels off and they look very professional.

So to answer question #1.
It is extremely tight in the front. But it fits and no clipping or touching. They were designed for this as it mentions on the site.

For question #2!
The brake reduction has been noticeable. It seems to keep the rims a little cleaner than usual. I usually wash my car, once a week at least. I have noticed a huge difference in how dirty the rims used to be and how dirty they get now.

love the caliper covers, but 180, lil' steep. I would love some black ones maybe there is a different brand with a more reasonable price, I'll have to look around maybe some from another car will fit also. About how thick would you say they are 3-4mm maybe.
Awesome ride though. I wanted black but I would have had to wait like 3 months to get the SX version so I went with silver. By the way are your tail lights tented also I couldn't really tell but they look clean.

Not sure if you have seen that site recently but they also do different colors in black. But if I were to recommend one thing it would be to not go through that company. So much hassle and the delivery took 3 weeks....

Yeah my tails are tinted. I used three coats of Nightshade. I'll post a picture of them when I get home later. Can't really tell with my lights on.

WandersX those caliper covers look really good! Reminds me of the Brembos on the Evos and Genesis Coupes. I was thinking about getting some for my Koup, how easy are they to install?

Take less than 5 minutes once you get the wheel off. That is definately an upside to them. They look so clean also and add a very nice look. What color car are you driving Rock?

Car ID because it was cheaper. I noticed that the other sites are more customizeable and different colors but a little higher in price. May be worth it...
