I'm personally a big fan of the two-tone... but that might be because I have black accents on white - so the two-tone is complimentary.

I'm not sure, if I had a SG or blue car, I may have gone for all matte black

i think the 2 tone looks amazing in white/red/blue but i have mixed feelings about it with the SG. i mean its nice but i think i like black better. i think im going to go with all gloss black and then maybe have the slats part covered in matte vinyl

I am dying to get this, with some fat 4.0 black chrome cyba tips



If I went any other way, it would be a satin black. Not too glossy, not too matte.... just right.

I know this is kind of late but I finally had time to take pictures and upload them. Excuse the dirty car but definitely go with the all black color scheme

+1 satin black would probably be perfect. That's the route I will most likely go if I upgrade to the performance diffuser

Im getting the JL Motoring full carbon fiber performance diffuser installed at a body shop as i type this.

...Needless to say, as i mentioned "body shop", the thing doesnt fit that great when trying on your own, i'd say maybe 90% or so right out of the box. The lines are not flush with the rear OEM Msport bumper, and the sides protrude out a little on both sides.

SO, im having a shop tweak the fittment to try and improve. Shouldnt require THAT much work, just some small tweaks, and should be done in a day or so, ill post up pics with how much i paid to get it to fit closer to OEM PD, and whether its a better bet to learn from me and just balls up on a DD or Arkym diffusor, or pay a shop and get the good fittment for still cheaper than those.

Wait you do know you need to trim the msport bumper to fit the performance diffuser, right? Even OEM performance diffuser.

You need to trim the M-Sport rear bumper, but if you get the Performance rear from Tischer you don't have to. It's made to fit the performance diffuser

No, I don't have to trim anything except the diffusor because fittment isn't 100%.

I have an MSport e92, the e92 does NOT require trimming of the bumper for performance diffusor, only the e90 requires trimming of the oem Msport bumper to fit the performance diffuser.

Are you sure? I was under the impression that any mtech bumper requires the trimming that I linked. From what i've gathered the only way you don't have to trim is if you have the performance rear

Edit: Never mind it seems like I might be wrong and you don't need to cut for the E92

Finally got the chance to install the IS diffuser from Tischer. Fitment is 100% and there was no need to cut, saw, or sand anything down. If you want to change that boring piece of plastic that comes stock on the mtech bumpers, this is the best way to go while spending the least amount of coin...

I always wanted to try using Plastidip, So I finally got around to trying it on the diffuser...

What yall think?

Looks freaking good and exactly like mine If it were painted body color, I don't think it would look as nice.

Thanks! Im pretty happy with the result. Didnt think the plastidip would come out how it did. Never considered painting the diffuser SG. Was either gonna go all gloss or all matte.
