    Default 355 engine bay shields

    Hi, Iíve just bought a 2.7 355 GTB and both engine bay lateral
    Protection shields are missing .
    I am not that bothered by it but if someone has them for sale it would be handy to refit them at some point.
    Cheers
    Kevin

    Can not help with the missing shields i am afraid ( it is often the case that 1 or 2 are missing in car photos which confuses me because how can they possibly get lost ? ).

    Congrats however on the 355 purchase ..... i am "next door" in Suffolk and have owned my 355 GTB since 2010. If you ever find yourself this way give me a shout.

    I checked my 355 after a major engine out service last year before leaving the dealer, and they had left one off, it was soon found and put on before I left, but I wonder what the outcome would have been if I had noticed it several weeks later, I imagine my cover would have been put back on someone else's car.....and then try arguing the point. Anyway I will in future always take pictures of my car before it goes in for any future work.
