Where can I get the 4 price carbon fiber engine trim panels from?

Mine are pretty heat faded

Or what other option are you guys buying for back there?

AHH? OK I thought these were the original carbon fiber ones on an AV not the plastic ones on a Gallardo!

Yes, these DO FADE on the Gallardo (i.e. the plastic ones) and as recommended above, I painted mine about 4 years ago and they look fine.

I took mine to the local smash repair shop (in Australia) and he matched it to the best looking (non faded) surface I had. It looks OEM to me and honestly I can't tell and neither can the car judges!

The intake cover is not so difficult (on the Lamborghini scale) to remove. The bolts near the fire wall are a little hidden. The rest is straight forward. I reused the gaskets.
And then you will also be able to see the Easter egg inside 😊

I was able to get ahold of a spare set of plain black plastic, aftermarket engine bay panels for my 2005. I literally just coordinated with a local outfit to HydroDip them to a carbon fiber finish. I know I am cheating big time ;).

The company assured me there are no heat issues as they have done actual engine parts. Will hopefully have them back in a couple of weeks and looking good.
