Which seller do you buy it from? How much? How's the fitment? Thinking to buy one from directparts4u but the fix price is too much for me. Please PM me if it bothers you to comment in public.

Looks good though!

Got it from factory2all, and i got both the diffuser and spoiler for a combined price with shipping included, that worked out to $550. Email the seller and he should be willing to work something out. Fitment is good had to pull it a bit to reduce the gap on the sides, and there are couple of issues with the weave if you look really close. Other than that everything is perfect and the price was good.

I'd like to add that removing the spoiler goop from the factory lip is a pain in the a...holy that was brutal. The size of these blisters on my thumbs....

Factory2all? Yes, he did mention to me about the combo but I thought I'm going to think about it. So you are the lucky guy who got it. Enjoy it sir! Thanks for the info

Are you using stock exhaust? Mine is aftermarket so the tips are 2x83mm. Do you mind to measure the width of the exhaust opening? How's the weave?

yes using the stock exhaust for now, hoping to upgrade to a berk set. Will have to get back to you about the length, but i don't see how 2x83 wouldn't fit.

Sounds good to me. Berk has smaller size in terms of tips but just want to make sure the width of exhaust opening. Many ebay sellers are saying it fits but they won't guarantee and it really bothers me. Thanks for your cooperation sir!

Agency power diffuser. The owner selling his car and he did mention it is a legit agency power, not rep

Any idea why the Agency power carbon diffuser models only cover 135s up to 2011? Are the rear bumper (or mounts) for 2012, 2013 135s any different? I have a 135is on order, and reading up on rear diffusers ... it is really frustrating ... crazy expensive OEM -or- dodgy ebay replica vendors ... my head hurts.

While I don't know the answer to your question, I do know that Rieger.de make a fantastic unit that is available through ESETuning as they do not ship out of Germany due to agreements with their licensed international distributors. I might add that if the licensed distributors are anything like the Australian one, they are as dear as poison.

Finally put mine on, sorry it took so long. This is the one from Scopione USA. I had some issues initially, the tabs were too thick. After shaving them down a little with a dremel, and fighting to get it into the bumper, it finally went in.

OEM look CF diffuser

I went for the OEM look carbon fiber diffuser from Mars Performance (Australia). Love the wet look. Good weave and good fit. You do, however, have to let them settle in, and maybe even make a later fit adjustment to get it exactly right.

Went for the eBay version from factory2all. Delivery took about 10 days.

Fitment was tight on both sides. At first I was worried it was too small but after flexing the diffuser and playing with the bumper it fit right in. The holes lined up, 1 bolt is not used.

The carbon fiber looks good. The mesh grill part needed some adjusting, it was too close to the clips and kept getting pushed out. If I was to do any modifications to the diffuser, I would probably get a different grill, maybe smaller mesh.
