Considering the price of the replicas, it's hard not to pul the trigger on the diffuser!

The only thing I'm really getting annoyed about with this diffuser is that I placed the order on the 8th, received a shipping email with a tracking number 2 hours later. However that tracking hasn't updated since. I emailed them this morning just to find out that they still haven't mailed it yet! They told me the tracking will be updated today, but it hasn't. I'm getting irritated. It doesn't take a week to mail something out.

Here are some pics of the diffuser itself. It won't be going on the car anytime soon, partially due to the fact that my car has a 1/4" coating of ice on it at the moment. The weather here has been pretty crappy, so I'm gonna wait.

And the inside of the diffuser

Looks really nice. How's the weave? Any imperfections?

Still trying to figure out which way to go with this, and I've just had an email saying that one I'd looked at has been re-listed on ebay with more stock.

The weave is very nice. There is one imperfection in the clear coat, along the top above the cutout for the exhaust. Its hard to see it though.

Might have to pull the plug on one of these soon.

Has anybody done a weight comparison yet? I'd be interested to know if there's any weight reduction, or if the carbon diffuser is heavier because of the metal mesh.

Sure, it won't be much, but it'd be interesting to know.

Nice, I'd be interested to see how the spoiler fits.

Out of interest, can you get close up pics of the CF weave around the curved edges above the mesh either side? From the pics of a lot of these diffusers it looks like the weave gets narrower/closer together around this part?

Oh, and I agree, your car looks great with the diffuser and LCI rears.

TBH, it's more about saving up for it than anything, though whilst I'm saving I'm trying to establish which one to go for. All helpful info so far, and no doubt helpful for others in future that want to see "proper" pics of the various diffusers on cars, rather than the white-background ebay pics.

I'll get there soon...

Thanks - believe me, I need no push to spend money on my car. It's not spending money that I have trouble with.

Today I received the BMWP short shift kit, some LED bulbs for my angel eye rings, and some car cleaning stuff... Whoops!

Just made this purchase today. I hope it was a wise one. Either way I'm looking forward to getting it installed.

Let us know what you think of it as I was looking at that same one and tried looking through their reviews left hoping someone who bought it talked about the fitment of the rear diffuser, but nobody had as of last week.

Yeah, I was searching for the same answers to the fitment question in the reviews too, I found nothing. I figured for the price it's worth giving it a shot. I'll post pics as soon as I get it installed. It wont be till week after next till I get around to it. I'll be on a business trip all next week.

I still haven't installed that diffuser I posted up there. Weather hasn't been great here lately. Hopefully, this weekend or next.
