Hey, is it possible to use 58mm baskets with for example the Lelit Anna PL41, which comes with a 57.3mm basket?

Been there, done that. The answer is no. Basket - no, tamper - no, OCD - no.

If you're trying to find a precision basket, I believe IMS has made some in 57mm. An alternative is Ascaso 57mm precision basket, which I had bought and used successfully with Lelit Anna. The downside is it has a strict 57mm diameter, so those 57.3mm accessories might not fit.
