That's a sweeping generalisation. I have a carbon spoiler, door mirrors and b pillar trims on my Maserati Ghibli. All bought from Ali Express and now three years old with none of the issues you mention.

Not saying it won't happen but I wouldn't logically assume that every CF part made in the Far East will discolour unless it's sold by a branded manufacturer.
