My Luck with diffuser's...F@Kg Hell

Just thought i share a little amusing story that date's back to a long time

First time i bought a diffuser from Mstyle, they gave me a complete wrong one.
Second one turn up and it did not fit.
Third one finally fitted after arguing with them for ages

Then i sold the setup...

Bought a Duke dynamic one which i can only say you get what you pay for. It fitted perfectly.

So now i am in the process of upgrading back to quad setup and i thought i skimp on the cost and get a eBay Taiwan one, because i have been hearing good feedback. So my item turned up at the cost of 240 for a Full CF performance quad exit diffuser. great price vs the 480 for duke dynamic one right??


I told them to triple check the fitment and i think they took the piss. Item arrived with a dent and it was 2CM out of place, now i am fighting against them for a case meanwhile i will not be driving my car as it looks like this




I am not driving the car out now until my new duke dynamic comes but first need to get my money back from the seller which will be pain in the ass.

My one of a kind TVR style haha FML!!

Most of these type of items are injection moulded and contain as much carbon fiber as my left little finger after a bad day with splinters at work!

That fitment takes the piss, I hope you paid with PP?

Sorry to here that dude and I hope the seller sorts you out.

I recently brought: BMW E90 REAL CARBON FIBER M-tech Front Splitter from seller happybuyitnow168 and they arrived cracked so I contacted the seller who sent me another set without any fuss and without the need to send the broken ones back and the second set they sent were perfect.

Initially I was hit with a 48 UK customs and scam tax when it was delivered but after explaining to Fedex that the item was delivered damaged and I was waiting for a replacement they canceled that initial request for tax and said they would charge me on the replacement item.. when that arrived they re-evaluated what I owed in tax and to my surprise issued me with an invoice for 18 !!! result. I guess sometimes you can get lucky with purchases from Taiwan.

I got hit for 22 which was after the cost is lowered, hopefully they either send me a new one or sort this out quickly.
