355 Carbon air box covers on Ebay

Here is some real JUNK for sale on Ebay

Ferrari 355 Carbon Fiber Air Filter Upper Covers Left and Right | eBay


So I foolishly though for that kind of money what the heck.

The covers do not seal against air filter among other faults. The only thing they are good for is wall art.

This is a heads up to all as this guy is selling useless crap.

I see there is an offer on this set.

The pattern I noticed from talking to someone else that bought is that it takes more than 45 days to ship parts & as happened to me I did nothing but wait & was not able to enter feedback. Luckily I also bought ash tray cover & was able to enter negative feedback on that item.

beware as they can't be used--compare to OEM cover

The 355 engine bay gets so hot, that almost nothing like this can deal with that heat... I remember when I first looked at the adverts for these things in ebay, that's what I thought - the carbon fiber can deal with that only if it is done professionaly, because of the resin, that it is covered with. Obviously that is not the case here. Actually I am afraid to put anything aftermarket under the hood, because the risk of causing fire is not to be underestimated...

Luckly in your case it is just some wasted money and nothing major.

This was not caused by heat as they were totally useless & could not be installed.

But like you said wasted money.

Oh, so you're saying you have received them in that condition?

Well, in that case you should thank God you haven't put that junk under your hood!

But for that money, what do you expect?! Looks like wet layup (hand laminated), but even for that prozess, very..... poor.

From top they look a bit better than from back.


Just noticed how bad the pipe-join really is...


Sad about the money.

I contacted my credit card company & put in a complaint.

I received a refund a few weeks later.

The seller of this crap is No longer a registered user on Ebay

That really looks poor.

Glad you received your funds back.
