    Can he give you the sizes. That would make the question much easier to answer.

    I measured the shields on my 2015 458 Spider (a couple of times) at the measurements that I have are 10cm x 8cm. I could not measure the thickness.

    appreciate it. If his measurements are correct, then it doesn't seem like it'll fit. Bummer

    I measured multiple times all up and down my shields and did not get any measurement to 8.5cm. The height seems correct. You might want him to remeasure.

    I'd be careful about not getting the exact P/N shields. I sent my F430 shields off for a custom enamel finish. This individual took so long that I demanded he return my shields, which he had already stripped, so he replaced them with shields supposedly from a salvaged F430. They "looked" just like my originals, but when I tried to fit them, the curvature didn't exactly match the fenders causing the shields to rock back and forth a little. I shopped around and purchased new shields from Eurospares for what I thought was a reasonable price.
