    I'm sorry but your actually wrong. The parts numbers you wrote are actually 599 GTO grills(p#82715700 and p#82939000) which do not fit the regular 599s. There is a couple threads about it, the p#82408600 is the 599 GTO style grill that is for the 599 GTBs. Please see attached screen shot from Ferraris catalog. Or this link from Ferrari: https://auto.ferrari.com/en_US/ferrari-genuine-accessories/pdf/000000000000011/82408600/1/

    Interesting as I got a different view in Europe, see below. If I purchased that ref, it became an Hgte. Anyway I managed to fit #82715700.

    Was it a perfect fit directly to the GTB bumper ?

    Not perfect to be honest, holes at the right place, but quite difficult to adjust. Will ask a pro. to finish.

    I emailed eurospares , They said the GTO grill which you ordered will not fit the GTB bumper.
    I will do more research , thank you.

    Bali is a heaven!! Enjoy your time.

    The correct GTO style grill for a standard 599 is #82408600.
    It is available directly from Ferrari.

    Price of material - less than 10 $
    Production costs - a joke

    Selling price - just crazy

    There is so much margin in it. Redo the design and start selling them. By your reckoning there is huge profits being made so go for it. Let us know how much you loose by the time you do the engineering, testing, management, inventory, shipping, returns, etc.

    I get SO tired of the same old diatribe. Prove me wrong and step right up.

    Why so aggressive ?

    It's the relation of the price for this piece of metal, no function, no expensive or rare materials, no really craftsmanship for production.

    For example.
    A water pump for the 550 Maranello from an excellent company from the UK is 60% of the price of the grill.
    A part with function, ballbearings inside, ceramic gasket, have to work from -50°C to 120°C, ...
    This is what I mean.

    Daniel,
    I get really tired of completely uninformed, uneducated, responses about cost. If it is so profitable to make very very low volume parts prove me wrong and go for it. You are blustering without any real support for your position. You didn't account for engineering, inventory, returns, as taken across the number of possible units. Either you are incompetent at business or intentionally being obtuse. Then you are upset when someone calls you out on it.

    Maybe that is an aggressive position but your position is unsupported so prove me wrong. Have you ever had parts custom made? I have and it isn't cheap.

    What's wrong with you ?

    YOU know NOTHING about me.
    NOTHING !

    When you get SO tired of the same old diatribe, why do you answer onto my post.
    Ignore it.
    For me, your opinion is ......

    John- Back off. I have known Daniel for a number of years, and he is none of the things you describe in your diatribe.

    Fair enough. I just get really tired of the same old saw 'it costs nothing to make, why do they charge so much' but they conveniently ignore the costs of doing business for very low volumes.
