Rear Diffuser

Hi,

Does anyone have any experience of this rear diffuser on eBay ?

Ebay

I have been on the hunt for a used 3D Design rear but this popped up on eBay and for the price I am tempted to buy for my 35i M Sport.

Thanks

Bhav

Looks good but for 460, the fit and finish might be questionable.

I have an 2009 standard 35i. I too would be interested if this is a good quality diffuser,
Does anyone have any experience with this?
Also I am assuming/ can it be confirmed? that this is installed over the existing (Non M) bumper with double sided tape?

Hmmmm. Continue your due diligence before pulling the trigger.
The ebay ad uses 3D design promotional picture with their own name overlay.....I'd call 3D and ask them if this is some of their old inventory from a defunct importer/retailer. It's $1000 USD below MSRP so as long as they don't ship you an empty box, your gamble may be a good one. OR call the ebay company. They've been around 8 years with good reviews. I know people who have spent 10s of thousands on CF where finish is usually good but Fit is seldom part of the product....but correctable.
Good Luck!

Looking at the 3D ad and comparing it t the ebay AD with the overlay, you are spot on. Great eye and definitely a buyer beware issue.

I am pretty comfortable that these are replica items, just wondered if anyone had any experience of fitment...as if the fitment is off and I have to post back to the US from the UK it will cost me a fortune!

I have looked everywhere at Rear Diffusers. It seems that 3D is the only product offering available without changing the full bumper covers.

I am looking for a nice Urethane or would prefer a CF Rear Diffuser that will work with/fit over my stock 2009/ NON M bumper and for use with the stock/base dual exhaust system.

I do not want nor need to pony up $4,500 for a Quad exhaust nor upgrade to the F and R M style bumper covers for a rear diffuser.

Has anyone ever used one of the QUAD Diffusers by adding on via welding a 2nd exhaust tip to the stock muffler to act as a fake tip?

I would rather NOT but I am tryng to think out of the box with a sanitary upgrade without breaking the bank.

I know that these cars are very limited which I love, but even so the upgrade product choice's are so limited and so costly, its disappointing at best. I guess you gotta pay to play.

ASK the seller for references. Ask a New York forum member to locate and inquire direct for you. Ask for Real time pics of the inventory, they have 5 in stock. I'd love this to have a happy ending for you and all of us.

I travel to Long Island NY often where the company is located. I am going to investigate the Rear Diffuser and the CF mirror caps and Front lips that they are advertising. I will let the forum know what I find.
