Aftermarket CF - best match to factory?
I plan to be down at Ferrari of Washington to look over a 2012 458 this weekend, barring anything coming up that stops that. Car is in Silverstone/Nero with CF seats, CF interior, CF rear molding, CF filter box cover. Not sure how I will like the two tone seats but can't really tell until I get down there Saturday. Asking price is $305k with about 1200 miles.
An alternate car is the 2013 that CNC has right now with about 300 miles on it, also in Silverstone/Nero. Asking on that one is $288k but it is absent all the carbon which I really like the looks of. I'm figuring that to "carbonize" the interior plus the engine bay will, in all likelihood, push the cost up beyond car #1.
On to the questions:
I would like to finish out the engine bay in CF and also, most likely, do the rear diffuser in CF. In looking at the MaCarbon, Capristo etc. offerings it is difficult to tell from pictures on the sites how they might match up with the factory CF filter cover.
I also would probably get the door sills as well to tie that together.
Anyone have any thoughts as to who's might match up best? All other things being equal any quality preferences between the brands?
Thanks in advance for any comments, suggestions etc.
