Part Information (Performance Diffuser) Carbon Fiber Insert

does anyone know where to buy the bottom black part shown in this picture, between the exhaust pipes but in carbon fiber?

also maybe CF covers for the 3 black strips if they're available too?

Im adding a CF performance CRT (paintmatched) spoiler and I think the CF pieces would go well with it. Opinions? too much CF? Car is VMR

BMW has an OEM CF finned center section for that diffuser - but only for E90

JL Motoring (forum vendor) has aftermarket cf finned center section like what you're looking for:

http://www.jl-motoring.com/BMW_E92_3...p/bmdi9214.htm

-OR-

You could go with their aftermarket full cf diffuser (they have single/dual/quad versions), & paint only portions of it to get the look you want that would leave cf on both finned center section and the inserts:

http://www.jl-motoring.com/BMW_E92_E...p/bmdi9212.htm

-OR-

They also have the standard style cf full diffuser in single/dual/quad versions (different than the performance/iS Sport diffuser you show):

http://www.jl-motoring.com/BMW_Carbo...p/bmdi9203.htm

Don't know what the fitment is like on any of those though - I've heard of fitment problems with some of their products on the forum...



Personally, I went with the BMW OEM iS Sport Diffuser (like one in your pic), left the finned center section in as-received matte black, but did custom cf inserts for the center section & the (2) end inserts. No one has these available that I have found.

I simply bought thin, adhesive backed real cf sheet from here:

Made cardboard templates of the OEM inserts, cut them out of the cf sheet, & applied.
