Thank you for the info! But the hood doesn't look as prominent as the OEM M3 hood...maybe it's the picture?

Several months of avoidance and being ignored by DD when approached for a refund, dozens of emails and photos sent back & forth which ended in duke refusing to take responsibility or accept a return. The d4 hood was described by 2 of the 3 bodyshops i took it to as one of the worst made parts they had ever seen. I would agree. Their distributor here eventually offered me a credit note but as far as I know we're never refunded by duke. I would avoid this brand like the clap.

Duke dynamic from my understanding have really been a hit or miss. I had no problems with there diffuser fitting. It fit perfect. Sometimes they also seem to send the wrong part. Maybe for the guy above they sent him a pre-lci hood for his lci car?

There are definitely some customers out there happy with their DD product, but the diffuser you mention left countless people unhappy and out of pocket. for a company making hit-miss product their complete absence of after sales support and refusal to help or take any responsibility for their crap product (in some cases and unfortunately mine) is unacceptable for any brand IMO. I'm familiar with both pre and post lci shapes and this didn't seem to be the case, plus the fitment issues were paired with horrible FRP quality, finish and construction.
Bottom end quality and design at premium prices, you may get lucky with their product, but you may also get stung and when you do they won't care, not a risk I'd pay over 1000$ to take again.
