Carbon fibre quad centre exit rear diffuser - Hartge Style!

Hi guys,

After heaps of research I have found someone who makes a similar Hartge style centre exit quad rear diffusers in carbon, without the centre fin (Hartge diffuser is discontinued).

These are made in Asia, previously sold on ebay, but no longer selling there.
These are the only photos available





It looks to be a replica of Boca Designs diffuser
http://www.bocadesign.de/details.php?id=27&cid=2&sid=23





I will be purchasing one very shortly, and was wondering if anyone in Sydney would be interested to save on postage?
These are made on demand, so if we get a few people interested it may be cheaper if we order together.

(I can't organise a group buy as the supplier is not a supporting vendor, please delete post if I have breached any forum rules)

Thanks
Steve

Regardless if Peak have the Hartge diffuser, it isn't carbon and it's about 4 times the price. Thanks for the heads up though

I have this diffuser, can confirm it is surprisingly good quality/fit.

Hartge no longer make their quad diffuser (discontinued), I checked with the Aus distributor as well as the US distributors in early 2014 and there were none available.

That design was also used by a european company called "Inside Performance" around 2009-2010. You might be able to find an example of that.

Its a quad version of the BMW Performance diffuser, a fair popular design. So it shouldn't be terribly difficult to locate.

I am aware of Inside Performance, but it costs more than double even without shipping from Germany

I'll be purchasing directly off Boca Designs as the original ebay vendor is too unreliable for my liking
