Default What will Brembo say?

I can't even see how these guys can put these out there . Brembo's lawyers must be asleep at the switch .

I'm surprised that eBay isnt pulling them. Funny they are a powerseller too.

Look at his location. It's too difficult for them to enforce copyright laws in foreign countries like thailand or the phillipines which is why you see so many blatant rip-off's on ebay coming from those countries and other small countries where copyright isn't strongly enforced/protected.

"Easily fit with the silicone glue."

The way it works is that Brembo will have to complain to eBay and ask to have it pulled.

These also have been around for years so I think they would've caught it by now...

And it's not exactly infringing on Brembo's target market

"Well I was gonna buy a $2.5K BBK, but these glue-on calipers are cool enough"

So is this like sticker HP? Do these add HP or increase stopping power? Maybe they do both.

It's been there for a long time, but for sure they sell them. I remember seeing those caliper covers about a year
