So I bought my 2016 560S back in February. One issue I finally fixed was the service latch lid on my engine cover. It wouldn’t open properly and as it turned out, it ended being an electrical issue with an easy fix. From the previous owner I do see evidence of a “struggle” in them trying to pry the lid open with some tool. Look at the bottom 2 corners that I have circled and you can see the paint damage. One thing I noticed is that the lid is not CF all the way through. It almost appears to be painted on there. When I had my lambo gallardo, I took several CF pieces off to re-shoot the clear and those pieces were CF all the way through. Begs me to wonder if this is actually CF.

That is definitely not the OEM CF. You can tell because the weave pattern is just continuous. The real thing has a symmetrical seam down the middle.
