Stylish brake caliper covers for your Mini

A lot of sport cars and supercars have bright calipers with some logos or brand names like Brembo, Wilwood, etc. These MGP caliper covers will give your vehicle the same sportish look for less money. They are designed to clip on top of your stock calipers. Installation is not complicated at all. It's much easier than painting, plus you can get some logo / engraving.

Fits on the following model years: 2014 (We also have them for other year models).

You can also get them custom painted and select any custom engraving for extra cost.

Check prices for your model and see other details here: Mini Cooper Caliper Covers | Mini Cooper Caliper Cover Kits

MGP® - Caliper Covers with MGP Engraving Cooper



MGP® - Caliper Covers with MGP Engraving Clubman





You can also check their presentation video: MGP Caliper Covers - Introduction - YouTube

Which color would you choose?

Dont think I would ever consider them, its got to affect how quickly the calipers cool down I would think, its like fitting a blanket over them, not good I would have thought?
Same thing some years ago you could get rubber covers that went inside your wheel to help prevent brake dust getting on the outer surface, people said they affected brake cooling as it stopped through the wheel air flow, you never see them fitted now.

Brake calipers are usually exposed when you install aftermarket wheels with thin spokes and stock calipers may not look that attractive.
These covers are designed as a more affordable alternative to the good looking performance disc brake kits to dress up your car and add a little style to it.

They will not cause any serious issues - it's proven with long term tests and SAE/DOT quality certificates.

Tacky addons any Mini could do without.

I suspect the majority of those fitting bigger brakes do it so that others can be impressed with the size of their equipment when parked. Actually braking better would be just a side benefit - for example, how much does painting callipers red improve the brakes?

So on that basis, cheesy calliper covers may just be what is wanted - though padding out your underwear with rolled-up socks is a free way of impressing others with the size of your equipment......

I agree, I mean lorries have huge disc brakes but I havent seen any calipers painted red on those as yet?
