Jumped the gun, bought the diffuser and spoiler from factory2all. Gave me a combined price for both of them, and saved me some money

Pics, pics, pics! (Once you've got it fitted, of course.)

FWIW, I bought the Scopione rear diffuser about a year ago and had mine installed by a local shop after a couple hours of struggling with it. The tabs were just not going into place like the factory one. When I got it back and it was all installed correctly I asked the shop what I was doing wrong and they said nothing, the tabs were a bit off and they had to do some shaving and manipulating to get everything to fit. They told me not to beat myself up over it, it was a bitch lol.

Anyway, for those of you who have this ordered or waiting to be installed, just a heads up for you that this could be the case for yours too.

On the bright side, it's still on with no problems and it looks 1000% better that that cheap looking stock piece. I still can't believe that BMW would put that on our cars.

Got back from business trip yesterday at 2 pm. Started the install at 2:30 pm. Finished at 3 pm. It was a breeze of an install and looks good. The tabs are more or less nonexistent on the diffuser though...opposite of the problem I've heard on the scorpion diffusers. It worries me that it might come loose from the bumper without having tabs to help keep it locked in place. The fitment is a 7.5 out of 10 in my opinion. It has a quarter of an inch gap on each side, but fits flush along the top. Sine the tabs are very small I couldn't really use some forced pressure to pull the bumper in and lock it in with the tabs and then tighten the screws. The carbon fiber is pretty consistent along the entire piece. There are a few spots where the weave seems to be out of place, but it isn't noticeable unless you get at eye level and look closely. I'll post pics tomorrow. Overall I think it was a great purchase and really enhanced the rear end of my car. LCI black line tails are next for it.

Here are my results with the eBay CF rear diffuser. As you can see there is a little gap on each side. I think it looks pretty good though!

The seller was 3A-MOTOR-US, http://stores.ebay.com/3A-MOTOR-US. I paid $362 after shipping and handling. It was $279 and $83 for shipping and handling. I received it 5 business days after I ordered it.

Nice, where did it come from? China, or internally from the US?

I think the jest of this thread is all about the economics of purchasing a CF rear diffuser. I believe the ModBargins is on the more expensive end of the market. I'm sure the ModBargins would fit better and have a better fiber pattern than the eBay CF diffusers. Would you like to be the ginny pig and pick one up and let us know how it goes?

Sure, its only~$40 more than the Scopione I believe. The mesh style is different from the pictures each website has posted (Scopione and Mod Bargains) but in this thread, people have posted pics and it looks the same.

Yeah, I would go with the ModBargins one over the Scorpion solely based on all the issues people have complained about with the tabs on them. Good luck! Keep us posted on what you do.
