Best place for DD diffuser? *Updated!*

I'm currently looking into buying a Duke Dynamics finned quad diffuser for my E92. Only thing is, I'm uncertain on where to get one. I know Bimmerkit has them for sale but I've read many negative reviews on them that ended up in the customer getting screwed over with terrible customer service and negligence. On top of that, the notorious hit or miss fitment with each diffuser.

Has anyone ever ordered from DD directly?
Any other places any one has got them from with no problems?

Just trying to get some insight from people that have purchased DD products with no problems.

Thanks!

UPDATE #3
Cyba tips installed. PG.3

UPDATE #2!

What all of you have been waiting for!
Picked up the car Saturday
Everything looks great. Paint is color matched, diffuser didn't give any problems. Fitment: 9/10.
The shop did an amazing job with the custom exhaust (muffler delete). Sounds orgasmic.
STILL haven't received my Cyba quad tips
So I just told the shop to weld in double walled tips. I don't think they look bad at all.
Just some quick iPhone shots for now. I'll give you guys some detailed shots later this week. Gonna wait until I get some more stuff to get a real photo shoot.





And here's a little shot I got with the iPhone that I thought came out pretty cool. Wheel gap will be gone soon



UPDATE!
Got my diffuser today and it looks absolutely amazing. Took a week to get here and packaging was great. No flaws on it whatsoever. Now just waiting for my Cyba tips and everything will put on
Sorry for the big pics. Taken with my iPhone.

I bought the trunk and diffuser from them. Never had any fitment or customer support issues. For trunk and diffuser, you can't go wrong with DD.

First time ever I've heard someone recommend Bimmerkit and say to stay away from LTBMW

What are you reasons for this? From what I've read around here, LTBMW has way more extensive customer reviews than some of the horror stories I've heard from Bimmerkit.

I think I might pull the trigger from Bimmerkit. Impulse is taking over. Was gonna get one from Cyba but he's back ordered 2 weeks.

Anyone else with some insight/help ?

I ordered the kit from bimmerkit.com on july 25th. I was speaking with them on email 2 days prior and they seemed professional at the time. The person emailiing me back said my diffuser will be ready and shipped in a week...
That was complete shit lol email them and no one responds so i decide to call each day and the same fobby guy says its not ready yet, they are back ordered as well and just keep bullshitting saying the next day and the next day it will be ready. Its august 7th now and no one responded to the emails and calls.
Basically even if you order directly with them you wont get it anytime sooner than another vendor. I personall would rather deal with LTBMW or someone close cause the guys at bimmerkit are fobby and dont have customer service at all...

Wish I would've waited cause I ordered the diffuser on Friday. Was emailing Sean back and forth and like your case as well, seemed very professional and responded quickly. This was until I sent them money. He told me it was in stock and ready to ship on Saturday. Waited and no reply. Emailed them Sunday and he replied Monday saying it was shipped on Saturday and it should arrive in a few days. Also gave me a tracking number but never specified through which carrier. I emailed them 3 times and called twice since Sunday asking which carrier it would be and have not been answered at all. I started trying the tracking number on all the different carriers. FedEx, UPS, DHL, TNT....nothing. Out of curiously I checked USPS and the tracking number came back valid with the package being sorted in Shanghai, China on Saturday. No updates since then. Guess now its just a waiting game. If I don't receive it by early next week I'll file a dispute on Paypal since I haven't received any response from them.
Good luck with your order!

Update: Sean just from DD just replied my message and gave me all the info. Maybe I was just too paranoid and skeptical with the stories I've heard from other people. But so far so good. Hopefully I get it in the next few days as they ship express.
Then comes the next scare: Fitment

Bimmerkit is DD. it takes a while to get the parts but once you received it and installed on your car, it looks amazing. Dont be too scared about fitment. No 3rd party parts fit correctly. I give DD 9/10 fitment.

Luckily the diffuser I wanted was in stock so it was shipped the next day. Most of the delay stories I hear are because they had to wait for the part to be molded. Sean told it should be here by this week. Can't wait. Will post pics when I receive it considering all goes well.
