Alpha-N Diffuser

I had the Alpha - N rear diffuser fitted last Fri with help from my mate Lee at http://crashcarecentre.com/

All the lugs lined up perfectly with the bumper inserts, finish is spot on and sits nicely with the BMW performance carbon boot spoiler....... Happy with the finish, adds a kind of oem finish and somewhat similar style to the F10 M5 diffuser.

Very nice! I wonder if this will fit with my Milltek exhaust. It's not perfect in the middle now and it would be a shame to damage this beautiful diffuser.

I cannot see why not, my backbox isn't standard and has been issues.

Took longer to remove the oem plastic diffuser, fitting the carbon took all of 10min, everything lined up. Get some pics up when you are done.

Update!

Diffusor and splitters installed, though the car is still at the shop. It looks GREAT.
Eisenmann tips fits perfectly.

Will let the car stay for the night inside a warm garage so the glue can harden.

Leaving for the airport in 5, will be back home on Tuesday with a full report and pics.

Wonder if he's worried about the 'nuts',as someone referred to it, part of the exhaust and not the tips?

that wont be a problem either as there is plenty of clearance in the raking centre section with the big oem backbox, this diffuser doesn't go all the way back covering over the area.
