Carbon Fiber inserts for Performance Diffuser?

Anyone know where I can get them? or anything to fill those areas? the left and right slots, and the middle finned part...

yea, guess I'm gonna have to wrap. I wish I could get a real carbon insert since I'm getting a csl trunk with exposed cf in the license plate section, and I wanted it to match

> Nothing available premade for the left/right/center slots.

> OEM CF/cleared finned center section available for Sport Diffuser - E90 ONLY

> Aftermarket CF/cleared finned section molded overlay available from forum vendor (JL-Motoring), but the cost is more than the entire OEM iS/Sport Diffuser cost

http://www.jl-motoring.com/BMW_E92_3...p/bmdi9214.htm


With that being said, I ordered CF/cleared sheet that has adhesive backing already on it from Dragon Plate:

http://dragonplate.com/ecart/categories.asp?cID=65

I made cardboard patterns of the end slot stickers and center slot insert, traced onto CF sheet, and cut out (you can cut the stuff with a good pair of scissors easily). I then attached to my iS/Sport diffuser & voila! had matching CF to rest of exterior parts.


I was in same boat as you - OEM M3 CF Mirror Covers, CF Grilles, CF Eyelids, rear spoiler with exposed CF edge - wanted CF on diffuser, but didn't want to wrap as it would not match rest of stuff.

For now I have the finned section in matte black, but I might break down at some point and buy the aftermarket molded overlay...

good idea, do you have pics?

JL motoring doesnt make the center attachment for the e90. Funny thing is, I bought the cf JL motoring diffuser years ago when I was going to go mtech, but later changed my mind and sold it. I then converted a year later and bought the performance diffuser.
