A good quality Complete 'Rear Diffuser' for lci e91 335d

Anyone know where I can source the above.

Iv'e checked bmw in their performance range, and unless I'm wrong they only do the 'Carbon centre trim.

Don't really want to go down the Ebay/China route in case of potential fitment and quality issues.

Cheers.

Duke Dynamics sell the nicest diffusers in my opinion, but they are expensive

BMW Performance supply the whole diffuser. Part 9 in the diagram below. You are looking at part number 10:

What are you looking for?

I would have thought the OEM diffuser painted in gloss black would look briliant against your LMB paint

Actually, painting the oem diffuser 'gloss black' as you've suggested isn't a bad idea - never though of that.

I do like the look of this, though obviously for a 335d with the dual pipe outlet each end.

Matt black finish - isn't that essentially what the original part is?

Found the bmw oem performance diffuser in 'Carbon Fibre, though showing on a pre-lci saloon. Will it fit onto a lci touring?

I have the performance diffuser on my lci e90. You have to cut the bumper even if you fit on e90/e91 lci or pre lci. It's not hard to do, some one has a DIY on this forum how much to cut etc.

The performance bumper is the same but the diffuser brackets on bumper are different.

My mate is the parts manager at a BMW dearler, he didn't even know till I told him I had to cut the bumper haha.

And the diffuser is in matt black finish. I got mines sprayed to my car colour an kept the centre bit un painted as am getting the carbon fiber on it. The dealer sell the carbon for 300 pound

I think I paid 120 or something like that on trade from the dealer and it came from Germany, which took a few days to come.

Hope this helps
