Diffuser fitted took a while to get it on it's not 100% perfect but it's good enough as it's the best looking one in the market under $1.3k. Seems finding one for quad pipes is so much easier. Mod 33
Note if you get a m performance diffuser you need to cut the bumper so it fits. Actually found the instructions online.

Front splitters back on. Just wanted to share some tips on fitting these because I had to redo it once.
Tips when using 3m tape:
1. Pull off just enough tape to pull
2. align the part where you want it to be
3. Pull the tape to get it to stick
4. Stand back and appreciate the fitment

Tips when fitting splitters:
1. Ensure tape on the corners as this is most important for it to look perfect
2. Tape the one closest to the grill first to ensure it doesn't stick out
3. Follow the 3m tape tips above so u get it in the perfect position first before u make it stick

Note:
high quality aftermarket splitters are IMO just as good as the genuine ones. Aftermarket parts might require sanding corners for fitment.
Aftermarket ones are thicker so feels more reliable but they are heavier(double the weight) than genuine ones.
Aftermarket one looks nicer as it's more aggressive and is way cheaper (less than $300 while genuine is gonna cost $1500)

So after doing some research I decided to get a can of this. Added it to the car after finishing my maccas so that the oil is "warm". After adding it to the engine may have added a little more than necessary (just under 300ml) but as Ruben would say it's "smooth". Engine also sounds quieter now. Supposed benefits longer engine life, lower fuel consumption, lower heat in the engine and safe on engine. Happy purchase
