Here is the daytime pic, just installed it last night... I adjusted it by starting right to left and flexing the bump slightly to eliminate the slight gap then tighten the screws. The gap wasn't that big to begin with and with out looking carefully you can't really see it, but me being anal i had to get rid of it.

The weave was good, a few spots here and there but you really have to look for it to see. All the holes did line up perfectly and no cracks on it... Overall its a great buy and looks great on the car.

Great stuff. Looks like it covers the exhaust pipes better too.

They have various sellers in eBay that sells diffusers. Look through this thread for an idea from which seller to buy from and pics of how they look... A carbon fiber rear diffuser with a CF spoiler is one of the best cosmetic mod you can do. It really makes the car look really aggressive...

Well obviously! I'm going to message this seller and ask him to make one with twelve fins... then you'll all be jealous!

In all seriousness though, the decision on which one to get is tough - but I do like the look of yours.

Any pics of it before fitting? The back etc?

I got my diffuser from 1ststuff4u. He sells both the 2 fin and 3 fin diffuser, just check out his ebay store. I dont have a pic of the gap before i adjusted but it was very slight about less than 1/4 inch in each side.

I am looking into getting a CF diffuser but I was curious, what are some opinions on the iCarbon diffuser. I think I like it a bit more.

Be sure to report on how it works out, I'm considering the same. Curious to know what type of wire mesh it comes with as their site shows one pic with the more open mesh and several with a tighter mesh.

Can we get these in FRP? My performance spoiler is body color, and while I don't want to color match the diffuser, I'm not a huge fan of CF. it would be the only thing carbon fiber on my car.

Do you have the website for ordering one? I'm most likely picking up a 1 series this week and that's on my list of things to order for it.

Couldn't find the link online for some reason..
