SSDD Performance Difuser

Has anyone painted this black to match the trim around the windows and mirrors and performance grills if you've got them. I'm thinking of doing it rather than colour coding it. People opinions?

what colour is your car mate?

id assume this would look better than leaving it plastic black which some people do! at least the gloss will match other things on the car as you mentioned!

if no one else has done it thats a good thing! youd be one of the first!

i got mine from teddy sprayed it body colour and it has the carbon centre to it!

Can't say for the e92, but here's a pic of a matt-black bmw performance diff on my e91. HTH.

I'd love to buy the pf carbon centre piece, but too paranoid that some thieving scrote may take a liking to it!

I prefer the matt black over colour coding it to the body colour.

I say get it sprayed gloss black to match the rest of your trim. Love a LeMans Blue with black themed car.
I would love the SSDD performance difuser, shame I haven't got an M sport car.

ive just put the black chorme exhaust tip on, just wondering if it would be too much black at the bottom, but the carbon would be a good contrast

Don't forget that the bmw diffuser doesn't come with the CF inlay - that's another 400 extra!

I could be wrong but I think the one from SSDD is carbon dipped or something similar - looks real good though.

Nice bit of kit

I got the genuine BMW performance that comes standard in matt black and had it painted to match the colour my car.

Love the performance diffuser, but is too much for me to be able to purchase.

Do we have any eBay friends that knock up a cheaper one? Like they do the lip spoiler?! Can't find any
