Yup, its exactly what you think it is :P

For someone who only cares about how their brakes look, and not how well they actually work (the topic of this thread), its an option right? :twisted:

Maybe but they look like crap in real life... I've seen a few on some riced out cars and you can tell they're fake 20 feet away haha...

But thats the definition of riced cars through right? They are "fake".

What I said was the performance of the stock brakes was good enough for me but I'd like a better looking caliper.
How does that translate to I don't care how well they work?

Pretty sure they were just on a tangent applying it to "ricers". I'm thinking without upgrading to a bbk all calipers will look relatively the same. Paint is about the only option to make stock calipers more appealing to the eye. You could also try slotted/drilled rotors so your eye has something else to look at and kind of distract you from just seeing a painted/unpainted caliper.
