Anyone notice this if you Build a 335i M-Sport on bmwusa.com

That the rear diffuser is a all black performance diffuser?

I think BMW is playing with my head, I was about to order one and have it painted matte black, but now I guess I should wait and see what's on the car when it arrives.

Nope, they are not playing with your head. The M-Sport package diffuser is black. But not "all" black, just the bottom...if that is what you mean.

I know the diffuser is black but this is what i'm talking about:

2011 M-Sport Rear Diffuser:



Notice no fins, not the BMW Performance Diffuser.

2012 M-Sport Rear Diffuser (from bmwusa.com Build Your Own section):



Notice fins in center section, this is the BMW Performance Diffuser.

Ya I had a pre LCI-Msport rear but added the Performance Diffuser painted matte black later on.

I'm really hoping it comes with the car, I'd love to save the $300!!

I did the same thing and built it in Space Grey with the M-Sport package, and sure enough, the fins are there. I wanted it in Crimson Red, but it does not have the M-Sport option
I would print out the order with the diffuser on the pic. I've had a few dealings with misleading advertising and haven't lost one claim when I pressed. Even when they try to weasel out and claim the old "subject to change without notice" bull droppings. I'm quite sure the fins come with the package.

No Fins

I just picked up my 2012 335i coupe (Feb build date). It has the M Sport package but no fins on the rear diffuser. But there might be a more recent change.

My 2011 Space Gray car has the fins. Must be a standard part for the M-Sport package
