Jeroen, not to hijack your thread, but I'd be interested to know if any 456/550/575 owners would be interested in replacement engine timing covers in CF? I've been trying to get several CF manufacturers interested in making them, as I believe there will eventually be a demand as the cars age and the OEM plastic covers become brittle and break. Already on eBay you can find examples of these that have one or more of the mounting bosses broken off.
But by the time there is a big demand, the OEM covers will probably have gone to unobtanium status and if/when you can find NOS replacements they'll be 5x what they cost now (around $1K for the set)
I had asked Kurt @ Future Carbon to look into making these for us, and he's been working on pricing, but it would be helpful to know whether anyone else is interested. I'm sure Kurt (and others) will be following this thread as it should provide invaluable information on what people actually want in the way of CF parts.

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.
