Part of the challenge with your advice is that no one currently offers an after-market BBK package for our vehicles... but you'll also be burning many thousands of dollars to upgrade brakes that already do a damn fine job for most of us
Stock, painted, or covers - do what you want. Your car. Your rules.
That is a pretty big challenge... I could have sworn Wilwood made a set but looks like I am mistaken there. Either way you will be spending a couple thousand on a BBK, so it's just a matter of where you want to go with it. These aren't track cars that are experiencing brake fade, so obviously putting on a BBK is nothing more than appearance, you'll never need that much braking power. It would be a last ditch effort for me if I ran out of mod ideas and just wanted that finishing touch.
As you said though, modding is a matter of personal preference. Do what you want and what makes your car personally yours. To me that's the hardest part of answering any question of "what mods should I do?" That answer is so subjective from person to person, you just have to take in all the ideas and do the ones that you like the best.
Also, for OP: Been in the mod world since high school with my first car 20 years ago. You will always run into people that like what you do, and you will ALWAYS run into people that "ridicule" certain decisions that you make. Do not let the naysayers make you feel like you made a wrong choice based on your opinion. Who cares if someone does not like your car?
(Edit: that last paragraph was pointing the finger at myself and feelings towards caliper covers)
