Anyone have trouble with the tabs being too small and not staying in the bumper? I was told to use double sided tape..?

Hi all .

Can anyone tell me if there is a 'better' option to choose from between JC Sportline, Louiellp or DirectParts4u?

I've read all the reviews and quality is comparable but some people report that the diffuser is a bit short in some cases which I'd like to avoid. I do appreciate that this isn't a 1000 BMW piece though .

I've got the one from Louiellp. it's been on for almost 12 months and have had no problems.

Thanks . Does it have that odd indent in the lower centre (between the two fins) part of the diffuser like I've seen on JC Sportline?

Same here. Not sure what "indent" you're speaking of...

Beter late than never but I finally pulled the trigger on this mod. I picked up the CF diffuser and the CF rear spoiler! Both from ebay sellers and both pieces are great looking and fit well!!! Can't beat the savings!!! The diffuser was from Directparts4U, it arrived in less than 2 weeks from Hong Kong and the spoiler was from BMW vs Benz, a seller out of Cali. Both items arrived it great shape with plenty of bubble wrap and padding! Install was a breeze....

Hi folks, for those of you with the Louillp diffuser, how is the weave and the fitment? Any chance you could answer the below to help both myself and other users considering ebay diffusers? Would be good if we can collate our information to "rank" the ebay diffusers. I've had my eye on the Louillp one for a while, and that one seems to be best from what I've read so far, but only a couple of people have it.

1.) People are reporting that the JC Sportline one was a bit narrow so you get a slight gap either side - is that the case with the Louillp one?

2.) How about the tabs, do they line up and fit correctly?

3.) How is the weave? Any imperfections or cracks or anything?

4.) How was the packaging? On their ebay site now they're saying that the goods are very well packed, so hopefully they've changed their packing from before.

Thanks in advance for any info that you can offer.

1). No gaps.

2). The length of the tabs could be a bit deeper, but I had no problems with alignment or installation whatsoever.

3). I had no cracks, but I noticed a couple of very slight weave imperfections. I had to look real hard to find them, however.

4). Packaging was great. I imagine the piece would have survived a drop off of a 5-story building.

Remember, you're going to be paying roughly one quarter of the cost of the OEM part. If you want absolute total perfection, spend the big bucks.

All I can say is that I've been 100% satisfied with my purchase.

Great - thanks for that. Sounds like the Louillp piece is a fairly decent choice then.

Does anybody have any before/after photos of these? It looks like the carbon ones cover the exhaust more, but it's hard to tell by how much, and exactly where they stick out more than the stock diffuser.

Cheers
