    I like it. Wish I had a 348 to put it on.

    You actually hit on something. A guy with some sort of kit car (can't remember what) emailed me and asked if it might fit. I said "I don't know, but I darn sure know that it fits a 348!"

    I knew when I designed it that it wouldn't suit every taste, so no offense taken. But hey, if we're going to assess blame, I need to get you the names of about half a dozen other 348 brothers in the 348 section that helped me DESIGN it. Blame those hosers !!! ;)

    Maybe Rob can add an "ignore" feature so that you don't have to keep looking at disdainful ads.

    EDIT: An interesting factoid: These homely things are now adorning Ferraris in the following countries: U.S., Canada, U.K, Dubai, Netherlands, Hong Kong (shipped out yesterday), Nova Scotia, and next week, one to Japan.

    Whatever happened to the " If you can't say something nice don't say anything at all" philosophy. I know I've kept my foot out of my mouth on more than one occasion by subscribing to it. PS. I think the grille looks great.

    We need a 1 year/100 post rule. If you haven't been an f-chat member for at least a year, or made at least 100 posts, you shouldn't be able to
    criticize another member, their car, or workmanship. Of course, then there's just plain decency. If you don't like it, don't buy it. Besides, it
    would not fit your F430 anyways.

    Yeah. And that F430 is ugly. **

    Although I will not be purchasing one, it certainly is not ugly. The kit is intended to restore the round tail lights that some consider to be almost a trademark and therefore a flaw with the 348. (I personally happen to adore the Square light look of the 348. Its one of the features that draws me to the car and a major reason I purchased a Serie Speciale. So what if its 80's. I love it.)

    Since we are being so critical of what others view as attractive, how about you to post a pic of the wife. I'm betting that will get a few "honest" opinions.

    In my opinion, and I believe I speak for several other FChat members, that grill looks fantastic, and if I didn't own a Speciale I would order one (my intent is to keep everything original and so far I have)

    This is the first I've heard of someone that publicly claims they do not like it. You are entitled to your opinion, but there is no need to be so rude about it. There was a lot of hard work involved with that project, therefore some respect is in order for other people's work/ideas.
