    Trying not to mod it
    The red flags I see are:

    1. No thickness or grade of aluminum given
    2. Gloss silver is the finish? Is this painted?
    3. Fewer breather holes than others on the market
    4. Zero reviews
    5. No actual photos of the plate
      • The pics of just the plate are all CAD or CGI
      • The "installed" pic is the only one you can't zoom on and if you look at the shadow on it, it is almost identical to the CAD/CGI plate shadows. The breather slits are slightly askew in the pic as well, and it appears one of the other images was skewed/pinched to line up and overlaid on an random underside pic.
    It all seems too fishy, and the price is close enough to known reputable plates that this would be a hard pass for me.
