Duke Dynamics Carbon Fiber Diffuser Fitment?

I've heard some HORRIBLE fitment issues regarding Duke Dynamics products.

In DD's defense, these were older posts, so maybe they were fixed by now?

Specifically, I'm interested in Part #: E90-03-205

Any help would be appreciated.

Recently, they've been nothing but short of excellence on their diffuser fitment from what I've heard. You should go through Bimmerkit and order it. Give them a call ahead of time to see which exact one will work with your model. They will guarantee their product if you do.

I'm thinking of purchasing one as well. Saw the pictures on other forums and bimmerkit and fell in love with the diffuser. It looks like it'll be a match made in heaven for my car. Still unsure about the fitment as well

I sent an email to LTMW a week ago. Rather get the diffuser through them but they haven't responded yet.

Damn that is sick. You ordered with bimmerkit? How long did the process take? From order to delivery

They're supposed to. But aftermarket parts tend to never be 100%

The Duke diffuser seems to have a great fit on coupes. I have yet to see a problem on the forum. I have read several however with fitment issues on sedans.

Thanks for the info Titani

Good to know. Looking at my options since I'll have to jump start my bodywork soon.

sedan fitment is garbage, extensive bodywork is needed to get it to work.

When you get the diffuser, get out a dremel or a file and just make the tabs thinner on one side of the diffuser.

It makes fitment much much easier.

don't buy them used. I got mine from a local and the tabs were broken. my body shop guy is saying hes going to have to build up some resin where the tabs are to keep it from popping out. Right now its on but its not flush like it should be but I'm confident brand new it was direct bolt on.
