don't mean to hijack, but can you post a pic of your rear bumper with the bastuck diffuser, please? thanks!

Man, I was really considering the DD CSL style trunk but after seeing the forum's consensus on this company's quality control I'm not so sure any more..

Im sure it helps abit, but most likely won't make the fitment perfect
not yet ah= = didnt have the time to do it lately....i will be doing it few days later before i am getting the exhaust done
nono the diffuser actually fits pretty good when the bumper is not installed yet the holes does match too....just the steps is wrong
we should have installed the diffuser before we put on the bumper= =
sorry for the OT

so u might give it a try!
coz i run into same problem with adamaster diffuser
That's not even a valid excuse. Its like saying a person screwed up on a tailored suit and just tell them to grow into it instead.

Replica does have their flaws but this isn't really a replica per se, so it shouldn't have a piece that curves opposite of the bumper contour.

unfortunately duke dynamics has a reputation for poor fitment parts...I wish they would improve on that aspect of their products.

Otherwise, the kits look fairly good.

I was one of the first group of people who bought their first product.

I have to agree their QC is sucks balls. Can't believe they are still in business.

For my case, fitment wasn't an issue. However, mine came with bunch of fu*king halls which I never wanted one. I clearly stated on the GB list that I don't have PDC and headlight washer. But there was... WTF

So I emailed the A-hole, aka Tokion, that mine came with those holes and I need replacement. He said the all front bumpers comes with headlight washers. Ok. Fine. I can live with it as long as it came with some sort of covers.

But the rear bumper... What should I do with those holes? So he promised me that he will send me a replacement bemper. Well... never happened. I have to call him every week and had to hear his BS excuses. And I finally gave up at some point.

I decided to sell all of them. Luckely, fitment and paint quality on them were all fine.

But... what kind of fu*king business attitude is that?

I wish Tokion see this and hopefully feel something. Or go to hell.

I've lost so much money... even I never put them on my car.

wow i have to say that it looks like SHIT...Take it off because I don't see anything you can do to make it fit...the lines don't even meet at the bottom...Since you cut some of it off, I bet that they will not even give you a refund, which is really sad...

Dam dude im surprised you have the tolerance for this kind of shit. If I were you I would demand a full refund and get something that actually fits. In the long run your spending more of your time and money just to get this thing to fit and its still never going to look perfect. Jack the f*ck out while you still can!!!
