WTD: Performance or Msport Diffuser E92 (335)

As title suggests, I'm close to buying an M sport rear bumper and would like to put a performance diffuser or an Msport one.. must be for a 335 (exhaust cut out either side).

Cash waiting and willing to collect within reasonable distance.

What do you have?

Sam

Hey bud,
M Style have one but it's not the performance one, it seems like a standard CF one.. I don't want CF one unfortunately.

I called up Cotswold BMW who have quoted 84 for an M Sport diffuser (335) which seems a good price, however, 240 for a primed performance one?..... I wasn't too keen on that price tag tbh.

Do you know of any going or any shops to carry the Performance Diffuser other than SSDD as I think his price is quite expensive..

Thanks,
Sam

P.S. Do you know if LCI side skirts would fit Pre LCI without any modification involved?

Thanks Raf, but I think that just for the middle piece literally, whereas I'm after that as well as the rest of the diffuser (which you see in white).

I bought my OEM performance diffuser (Stephen James Enfield) in Sept. I have a 335i so part numbers are the same for your 335d.

Large diffuser piece with exhaust cutouts 51122158792 - 77.50 plus VAT
Centre diffuser piece 51122158793 - 30.25 plus VAT

So not too bad, about 130 including the dreaded, plus painting.

I think the 240 you was quoted was for the kit, which for some strange reason is more expensive than if you buy the parts individually.

That's right, I think I rad somewhere on here that buying the kit together cost almost twice if buying separately. Strange isn't it, but probably another way for BMW to draw more money from the naive!

Yeah I'll opt for this when the time comes so thanks everyone

**Note to Sam**,if you use the part no's above,and put them into the search function on www.bmminiparts.co.uk, you'll get the parts cheaper than from a dealer
Any probs,let me know,and I'll do it for you

Phoned the parts dept. and said that Sytner in Chigwell can do it for 15% discount (which was true at the time), so they offered 12.5% discount.
I still have a copy of the quote if you need it to show them.

Always worth haggling.
