Eurospares have quite a checkered record with me. Usually the new parts I've bought are not in Ferrari boxes, suggesting that they're either from the OEM's (in the case of the Dayco timing belts) or they're simply Chinese ripoffs.
The used parts are always a mixed bag too - they get it right maybe a little more than half the time. Last year I purchased a 575 thermostat cover from them, and they sent me a 550 version. Similar but not what I wanted or specified. Recently I purchased a 550 rear water manifold, and they sent me something that was similar but had the ports in the wrong place. Not even sure it was a Ferrari part, so I called them on it and they said that's all they had. Bought the correct manifold from them two weeks later - did they offer to make the first one right? Of course not.
Russ @ FerrParts is a far better source for used & cheap OEM parts, but his "kits" are full of dodgy no-name stuff too. The thing about Russ is that if you tell him you want "only" Ferrari parts, not the no-name stuff, he'll make it right. Eurospares will just say "tough" or they'll go into their smoke & mirrors and obfuscation mode.
