    Curios... I noticed there are some vented (laterally below the license plate mount) rear bumper covers out there on 355's. Are these aftermarket or OEM? I grabbed this pic off the web...

    Covered in other threads. Early cars no, after late 1996, early 1997 all vented.

    I thought it was only 95s that didn’t have the vents and all others did but I guess maybe it was later before the change? My car was a 97 built in 96, one of the earliest 97s, and it had the vents.

    My mid production 1996 did not have vents. There is a part number change and was pretty abrupt. I was generalizing on the time line. None of the 1995’s and it changes in 1996, but it may have been late 1996

    My 1999’s have vents

    Must be a US thing, all F355 including early 95 had the vent outlets on Australian delivered cars, we also got the center brake light in the upper grill.
