    Shout out to Denis and Ian at MyRicambi for a great product and prompt customer service. I had some apprehension about ordering these carbon door panels because they were half the price of some other retailers.

    My installer had no issues, fitment is excellent, and weave matches OEM. My only complaint was the high cost of shipping. However, the panels were packaged very well and I felt confident that, like others have said, if there was an issue with the panels, they offered a 100% guarantee.

    These are a really nice upgrade to the 458, especially if the foam behind your leather is starting to degrade causing ripples in the panel.

    Hope this helps some of you!

    It never ceases to amaze me how often a member with a really low post count comes on here and raves about MyRicambi :rolleyes:

    It seems as though there's some kind of negative history with Denis? I had a great experience, emailed him and Ian to thank them, and was kindly asked to leave a positive review here. They earned and deserved it.

    My rippling panels were a major aesthetic issue, specifically my driver's side. I'm thrilled that there was a cost-effective option for me that met my personal standards.

    Whatever the beef is with Denis, I have nothing to do with it. I'm a satisfied customer who has been a dreamer since 2009, member of this forum since 2014, and finally, a 458 owner in 2019.

    I'm a business owner who burned some bridges in my early years that thankfully I was able to mend. Maybe people change and grow? Denis treated me well and I would do business with him again.

    This mod looks great to me. Adding carbon fiber to the door panel adds an extra bit of bling. When it is well made and matches the oem stuff, it can't get any better.
    Glad to hear that you had a good buying experience and I hope it will help somebody else who might want to do the same project on their car.
    I did the carbon engine compartment mod on my Spider last Summer and enjoy looking at it every time I open the engine compartment.
    I hope to add more pieces to my car this Winter when the weather turns and I need some fun time in the garage.

    Great picture of you in Paris.
    Must be a great memory.

    Best wishes,
    Gene Greer

    If the car has factory Carbon interior trim, then it is important to have the door panels match the Ferrari weave.

    Glad to hear that it does!

    An additional benefit with the door panels in Carbon is that it actually improves the audio a bit. The sound from the rear speakers are reflected off the carbon panels like a soundboard.

    Completely agree. I'm so happy with the completed look. Never really thought of the added benefit of sound being reflected. Win win :)

    I have a very similar interior. Carbon drivers zone, dash inserts and air vents, center console and door panels

    Also did carbon fiber front winglets, rear bumper trim and fog ligh surrounds

    Doing the same carbon fiber trim with my upcoming F8 spider too

    Mine was spec’d with OEM, so cant speak to the ricambi panels, but can to the panels generally. I love them personally, with full CF interior it’s difference maker. People compliment/comment on them specifically all the time, if you’re into that sort of thing.

    Is the rear bumper trim a snap on piece? How did you affix it? Do I need to purchase another Ferrari emblem? Are the holes for the Ferrari emblem pre-drilled so I don't need to eyeball/match the location? I've always loved that look and would consider doing it if it was relatively easy and wouldn't damage the paint underneath.

    For the fog light surrounds, does the bumper have to be removed to install them? Or can they be replaced after removing the diffuser? I think I can do the job myself if I don't have to remove the bumper. I'm that guy who would break some tabs, which is why I didn't even attempt to touch my interior.

    Totally agree, full CF interior + Panels is a significant improvement. The carbon wraparound side to front to side is a joy to look at. I've been going to the garage to admire as if I'm a bystander at a car event.

    Agree 100%. Ordered and installed the same panels on my 458. Service from Denis at MyRicambi was great and panels fit perfectly.

    The rear bumper is only available from Ferrari, and the Carbon bit is the central zone. You need to buy a new bumper and the center trim. Since your car is red (?) the center carbon trim will transform the look. Look around for pictures on the internet and that will give you an idea about the look

    Not exactly sure how to install the surrounds, but suspect one needs to remove the rear bumper.

    I also recall reading that the trim piece is thinner and transfer heat from the engine compartment more efficiently than the standard bumper material.

    It is correct that the rear trim piece is part of a different rear bumper assembly. As for 'more efficient heat transfer' that is the kind to total nonsense you find on the internet. The carbon trim is a very nice aesthetic modification and nothing more.

    As for the fog light trims, replacing them does require the removal of the rear bumper. As it happens the bumper on the 458 is pretty easy to pull. Any knowledgeable tech can have it off and on in less than an hour.

    Great info from you both, I really appreciate it. I think I'll probably be replacing the fog light surrounds but, as beautiful as it looks, I don't think I'm up for a full bumper replacement and paint. Was hoping the part below might be some kind of snap-on/over piece. Thank you fellas!

    If you’re wanting to put the factory trim piece on then you would have to replace the whole bumper. The 1 from Myricambi goes over your existing rear bumper and is held on by silicone or some type of adhesive.

    Thanks !
    This is not the factory bumper which I have.
    Obviously a thin piece which lays over is actually a little heavier and add more thermal insulation

    Here is a YouTube which shows some of the Carbon exterior trim options on both the 458 and 488
    On the 458, the car has the front winglets and the rear bumper center trim done in Carbon by the factory. And the 488 has a front internal opening and rear taillight surround done in factory carbon.

    (Oh don’t worry about having your window crack. The fast approaching car caused the drivers side window to break.)
