I can have it come down lower than the bumper a bit and include a horizontal slot like this one does if people reckon it's a good idea...
I think it will look ok with the cut-outs and you can see the color of the bumper underneath. my 2 cents

What does everyone else thing? It might add just a little extra to the design...

I am interested in a CF diffuser for my
Pre-LCI E90 non 335.
Dual Quad exhaust
"with or without flips" not before I check the design.

(I guess that is the 2nd chart in your post)

Hopefully within the next 6 months. Have picked up a bumper to develop from (pre-LCI, non-335) and will be delivering and discussing with the moulders on Monday next week.

Will do my best to have it out as soon as possible.

As stated above, the first product will more than likely be the non-335, single cut-out with no fins. Soon as that one is done I'll being work on the 335 dual setup (second most popular so far from the responses). Then will move into the quad setup for both non-335 and 335, unless the demand changes

I don't like this... So I tried getting this going and now I won't see this for a good year or so cause I want dual quads?

Dammit - you're right. I lost sight of the fact that you started it in the first place...

I'm going to see the guy on Monday to chat about this work. Let me see what I can organise. Most of the moulding is going to be the same, so perhaps it'll only take a week or so longer to get the non-335 quad setup going.

Let me see what I can organise. Either way I'll defiinitely switch the order around so that we go non-335 dual, non-335 quad, 335 dual, 335 quad instead...

Looks photo chopped to me. Also that is what i did in my 1st post also. Thats fine for someone who wants to run singles but I want to run dual quads on my non 335... so I need to cut an opening on my original bumper and have a diffuser over it to make the likes clean.

Have you guys thought about just doing a vinyl wrap? That would be the lowest cost solution and the good thing is it won't stick out an inch and will be flush with the existing bumper. You could do matte black, cf whatever

How hard is it to grasp the concept of why I want the diffuser made?

Which idea? The diffuser idea? Certainly not...

I've got the bumper and have dropped if off at the moulder - he's taking a casting from the bumper itself and will be working on the modifications as soon as he's completed the m-tech one this Friday (03/18)...

Sorry that I haven't given an update - been a bit busy these past couple days...
