    I have the red seat covers and car cover. I'm looking for these same high quality covers in Yellow. Anyone know where I can find that? Thanks in advance.

    I got the red one from Ferrari for my 348 spider but they have yellow as well. Not cheap and took a bloody long time to get here but the ol' cavallino on the bonnet is nice and it fits like a glove.

    Those covercar ones look nice if I ever go for blue...

    Cheers

    I am thinking of ordering one (red) from the owner's site. How long did yours take to get here once ordered? Were there any Customs charges on top of the purchase price plus shipping (50 euros for shipping!)

    Thanks,

    Mine took 2 months to get to me and with shipping and duties it was damn near $400! Still, it's pretty nice and it looks great with that horsey on the front.

    $400 wow, but the factory ones look really nice! I priced one from Covercraft (similar material, but no cavallino) and their price was $341 + shipping. The one from the Ferrari owners site costs 230 euros (+ 50 euros shipping) which works out to about $330 USD total. Do those prices seem in line with the cost of the cover when you bought it? If so, am I correct to assume a ~ $70 Customs + broker fee? I have not emailed one of the other links posted (Covercar in Italy) to find their current cost. I am assuming they would not come with the Cavallino.

    Thanks,

    -Kevin

    I just ordered a carcover called Snugfit from them. It is a lycra/polyester outer blend with a looped cotton interior lining that supposedly fits like a glove. I should have mine in a week or so. Autoanything.com is a distributor of them.
    My Ferrari dealer had a factory 550 cover with the horse on it for $675.00. and they had one in stock but I just thought that was too much. I am having my cover made for $400.00. I think mine will be a little thicker to protect from minor bumps but no horse:( I hope I am not disappointed.

    Just logged in to the owners site and checked "my orders". I ordered it on May 26 (which would be right after I bought the car from Martin) and it says delivered August 12 which sounds about right. So say 11 weeks plus or minus. There mighta been a few bucks for customs/duty but it wasn't very much. It is a darn nice cover, though....

    Cheers

    You're pretty much right on the money with your estimate (no pun intended). My total came to $396 and change after all was said and done. The cover looks and fits great though!

    Gary, once the cover arrives, I would love to see a pic of it and hear a report from you. Once, a long while ago, I saw a 348 fitted with this style of cover. I was always very impressed by it--enough that I still remember the encounter. Anyways, I've recently been trying to find one in that style, and the SnugSoft you've described fits that description exactly! I love the OEM covers with the Cavallino, but I think there would be benefits to having the thicker plush material such as the SnugSoft. And it does come in red too! I'd appreciate the feedback once it arrives. Thanks.

    you can also try this guy:
    Joe Foster at hif360@aol.com
    He sells the car covers, seat covers and carrying bag....all in different colors. Last ad I read, it said that the cover with the bag was approx $400.
