360 With a 458 Front Bumper

SO I was searching the internet, and I came across two Ferrari 360's with 458 style front bumpers. Now initially I thought that it looked so incredibly amazing because it made it look 5 years more modern. However I feel like as far as "Upgrades" and "Customizations" go, this would be a no no amongst the Ferrari community. What do you guys think? Yay or Nay?

i'm personally a purist -- no customizations...that's like altering a Picasso...or Patek Philippe watch.

Somewhat interesting, it makes the nose look sleeker.
I like it a little bit.
But wouldn't do it to my Spider.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

I think it looks great. I have never liked the 360 front end very much and this really is a vast improvement to my eye. If I had a 360 I think I would be inclined to do this, but only if it were reversible.

Best wishes, John

Those are 458-430 rocker hybrids! It's got the bottom skirt of a 458 but a 430 side vent!

Who is the manufacturer? Mansory?

Love it! It's a whole different car.
If I owned a 360 would have it done without a doubt.

Because of my car's mileage, spotty maintenance history and DIY repairs, I'm not concerned about resale value. Also, this looks like it's just a bumper cover that could be swapped on and off it you had to.

Personally, I like it and the side skirts. It makes the car look a tad more modern. If I had the details of where to get this stuff, I might be tempted to give it a crack. I wouldn't mess with the wing or the extensions on the top intakes, though. That's starting to get a bit over done in my opinion.
