I ordered through CarID.com for $199 shipped. Took about 2 weeks since they were custom order.
So I got my caliper covers and had a local mechanic install them. But, he said there was not enough clearance and they would rub the inside of the wheel. He suggested getting the 3mm spacers that the instructions show to get if needed. Anyone else have this issue? Use the 3mm spacers? CarID sells them (info on the instructions).

Just got my red MGP Caliper covers put on my baby--->
Hi - I noticed you have the MGP caliper covers on your civic HB with 18" wheels. I just bought mine and the mechanic said I would need the 3mm spacers to get them to fit. Can you confirm that? Did you need to add the spacers? Much appreciated!

Nope---didn't need spacers..but it is a very tight fit

Okay thanks. I may need to get another mechanics opinion.

I have been debating between MGP and paint and finally decided to buy a set since it was discounted on Amazon. Definitely happy with the purchase and no need to worry about repainting again.

I think I may bite the bullet and get these. carID seems to have them for the sport now so I'm hoping there's no spacing issues. Looking great, everyone!

Looks fantastic! At $130 for the set it's a no brainer. Great pick up!
