    Hi everyone, I am a proud new owner of a 2008 F430 coupe (RHD).
    I'd like to thank the community here and buying advice for me to make the right decision.
    I've just had the car for 3 weeks and loving every bit of it especially the carbon fiber challenge grille at the back.

    I was hoping to get a CF diffuser but the original ones are too expensive for me and I wouldn't want to get the ones from China.
    I was hoping for some advice as to which carbon fiber diffuser would best match the challenge grille weave pattern and make it look as original as possible. I am considering Carbonio, Rtuned, MA carbon by OYA and Fabspeed.
    Correct me if i'm wrong but I seem to see that the fabspeed weaves are a bit wider than the challenge grille.
    The one that stands out to me at this moment is the MA carbon by OYA. Budget is a concern but I wouldn't want to regret getting the wrong one.

    Thanks in advance.

    Henry

    the original does not look carbon fiber. I has paint on it, doesn't it?

    The original diffuser which I have now should be fiber glass and doesn’t look so good in plain grey colour so I was hoping to swap it for a carbon fiber one

    ok, sorry for being unclear.
    what I meant is, the OEM carbon fiber diffuser (an option) is painted on as gray as well.

    Oh... That I didn't know. I thought it was just a different weaving giving it a different colour

    I have the Fabspeed rear CF diffuser, and it looks and fits perfect. Matches factory fiber pattern.
