Arrow Your opinion on Carbon parts

Dear folks,

coming back soon in the MV world, I wish enjoy my F4 as most of you.
from now, I'm a bit confused, upset and disappointed about one thing.
I thought (how nave i am...) that adding carbon here and there on the bike would be smart.
It was before I had to mount everything.
Half of the parts are made OK, half is a nightmare.
Quality is there, apparently but I guess I'm either stupid or unlucky since there is nothing i could do with some of my parts.
I'm not an engineer, not a mechanic but parts are just components you plug one into another.
I did not necessarily try to save a huge amount of money but in the end i lost time, money, and the parts are just...rubbish, fucked, call that whatever you want.
Am I the only one who's having troubles to place carbon parts ?

Now apart from MV Corse I won't buy anything else, no more trust

I'll appreciate your feedbacks and point of view...

Don't go with cheap carbon. CAG gets some nice carbon at a good price. Here is a pic of mine. Body panels are from CAG. Airtubes and most all the accent parts are MV Corse.

I've replaced every plastic piece on my Brutale 1078 w Carbon, got it from CAG, Ade and Bestem. All the weave patterns look the same, all quality it good. Every piece lined up perfect or even tighter lines than stock. No issues here. Not sure what to say, maybe I got lucky. From battery tray, intakes, side panels, fenders, fuel rail covers, key guard, oil cooler cover, entire tail. I know an F4 has more body work, maybe it leaves more room for error? Good luck.

Thanks for your posts.
I read some of the threads related to what MV-Woodster changed on his bike and it's truly awesome.
I wish I had the same result but i had to give up for the airbox, then the nose cone and now of course the tank (because of legal issue, leaks, etc.)
