Opinions on this c/f quad exhaust diffuser on eBay...

Yes, another eBay diffuser spotted! Anybody have experience with this product from eBay? Fitment wise, quality wise? Don't really feel like spending $435.00 on something that has crappy fitment. Looks promising nonetheless...

The mesh installation looks strange from the back, but I wouldn't write if off. I've had great luck with ebay and been screwed by brands that supposedly are "top notch" (icarbon)
Price is damn good

Fitmentwise is ok for $ but this guy is very poor packing. Your part may come damaged or something. I wouldn't buy from that guy again.

If it is anything like the other Chinese replica CF diffusers (JCSportline) etc.. then you should be good. Fitment from those were okay, needed to work it a little bit with the tabs. Overall fitment was great according to past threads and the quality was good considering they are chinese replicas. For the price you can't beat it.

Honestly, just buy from jcsportline fitment of their stuff might be a little off. But with a little elbow grease it's worth the 200 in savings (for my diffuser)

I just put a jc sportline one on the other day. Took a bit of massaging to get it to fit nicely but looks good once it's on. Only issue is the paint on the mesh is pretty crappy and has peeled off in some places. Will touch it up and see how that goes, but it might be worth installing better mesh before you put it on the car.

I got one. It came damaged and they then told me they wouldn't be selling them any more and therefore couldn't replace it. A week later they're selling them again... I wouldn't trust their after-sales...

Oh, and someone else I know of got it and the 2 side mesh pieces were oriented 90degrees off angle from the centre piece... Made the diamonds look like they were pointing up instead of sideways... Apparently they've fixed that issue now though...

Sorry? The link is to an eBay listing. The price is $349 USD...

If you're looking for the JC Sportline one, don't bother with their site. Search eBay for them...
