BMW M carbon is 1X1 (ie M3 roof)

BMW performance carbon is 2X2 (ie CF 135 parts)

Are there differences in manufacture between 2x2 and 1x1 weave, is one stronger than the other, easier and cheaper to make? You would have thought the performance parts would match the roof on the E92.

Aren't you going for the splitters as well? Will this one hide exhaust back box? Is it only available in carbon fibre?

Nope on the splitters, for the money and the chance of me ripping the buggers off I am just doing the diffuser for now.......

And yes mate it is meant to hide the back box, only in carbon but you could always have it painted .....

I'll have a look at yours first if I may

Those diagrams above show two different diffusers, is the top one the OEM scan?

Made your mind up then Shane? What made you choose Alpha over RevoZport in the end?

Still umming and arring myself, though I prefer the shape of the RevoZport OE I think the pictures make it look dark and may not match the BMw CF as well as the Alpha stuff.

First thing, not getting stung by import tax as we are inside the EU

then I was after something a little more than the oem look but still subtle and not overly different, plus the alpha swoops back in the mid section and covers the viewing of the backbox, plus the cutouts for the exhaust wraps around a little more so, I thought if I was to replace I might as well go for something a bit different but close while I am at it.....

And I really do like the look of the alpha

I really like the look of that close up. But not sure whether to save some cash and just go black on my diffuser as N4BSE has done, which I thinks looks pretty smart too.
