(E90) Official Performance Rear Diffuser and Bumper Thread

I'm installing a performance rear bumper so I've collected some pictures of the bumper and variations of how it's painted to determine how I want it to look on my car. I didn't see a thread dedicated to this so I'm creating one for others to use as a reference. Please post more pictures if you have them.

You can find the part numbers here: http://accessories.bmwusa.com/Vehicl...n.aspx?yr=2009

I love the Performance diffuser, but I think it needs a CSL trunk and LCI rear to be pulled off.

i still cant bring myself to like the performance diffuser 100%.. I like it on some cars with different mods but it doesnt have that clean look as the OEM one.

I agree. It looks ok without the CSL trunk but it works so much better with it.

I have the JL version of this and i'm not even sure i want to put it on at this point.

Also....for those that don't already know this....there is a part of the factory bumper that you need to trim off on both sides in order to install this. Its not a straight bolt on.

I'm not the biggest fans of this diffuser, but nice collection of pics of it.

Thanks. So far, I think the original painted diffuser look only looks good on the blue Msport car.

Looks good when you have duals on it or quads too!

Remus (cheaper, sounds great) or Eisenmann (if you can afford it).

bmw performance rear is nice, but keep the diffuser abs plastic black. or paint it flat black.

quad exhaust just looks awful. the single outlets on each side just looks so good and appropriate for the 335.

Thanks, but I was referring to the diffuser. Do people just cut it to fit or is there someone selling those quad diffuser?
