Is there a problem from installing brake caliper covers ?

Only in the brain that thinks this is a good idea.

Apart from the fact that you're making it harder for the brake to dissipate heat, if that lump of crap comes loose on the move can you imagine how badly your day might turn out?

As I understand it these covers makes fine job of improving the brakes on old Vauxhall Corsas,but,as others have said,don’t really work well on Leons.

If they're in an accident as a direct result of them your insurance will be void.

Hardly worth it for something that looks shite anyway.
You do realise hes not UK based so that statement is probably invalid.

They are a terrible idea however, I've heard horror story's of them coming off and getting stuck in wheels etc.

While 17 year old me would probably have considered them I think they look a bit odd, you appear to have massive calipers and tiny discs. It just doesnt look right.

There are then the issues noted above that cause brake performance issues. Personally i'd get some big brakes if you want the look of big brakes.

The fr logo looks to be printed really terribly and this will probably melt and get stuck in the caliper, I'd just save for a year or two and buy a big brake kit REVO do a great kit

Why not just spray the existing calipers in gold whilst still mounted and hand write "BREMMBO" on the face?
