I agree. Just some generic red brake caliper covers with a Brembo sticker added.

Was there a red "H" badge on the front?

That’s what I did. I painted my calipers red and my rotors black. Looks great. Very happy with the braking. I don’t track it so stock is fine.

People and companies that try to act like trucks or SUVs are sporty on the street are a joke. Trucks are cargo carrying/towing appliances. SUVs are lifted minivans. None of them handle well. None of them are fun to drive.

You could say bbk is overkill on a 200hp civic as well.. what's weird to me is that the brembo covers are tiny compared to the truck's stock calipers. Why not just paint them red
Literally no one that does HPDE, whether that's track days, autocross or actual racing has ever said "man, I wish it took me longer to slow down"

BBKs are always overkill on the street. Even something like an aggressive pad compound on regular sliding calipers is overkill on the street. You're probably using 15% of the potential of your brakes in stop and go traffic, and MAAAYBE 70% in an emergency stop.
