Challenge diffuser WHERE ART THOU

Last update from August:

It's been a long road, but we keep on pushing to get it back out again as we know there are many lusting for it.

Any Challenge representatives can provide an update as to what the current situation is regarding the diffuser samples or possibility of re-starting production?

Thank you (Also on behalf on the many m3post members that are dying to know )

No offense to challenge but they have been saying a few months for the past few years. Their product is A+ and that is why everyone wants it but it's hard to believe that they will ever find a supplier that they end up liking.

So shall we carrying on with this GB?!

If we have more than 5 lined up we also get a tiny green leprechaun thrown in with the deal (Details your cars at night while your sound asleep!)

I am also curious as to when challenge will begin to make these again. I highly doubt they will find a supplier who makes the diffuser to their liking. I don't blame them if their supplier cant make a quality product don't sell a half assed one. I saw that e92 diffuser at ACM and was very tempted. I would rather have it in carbon fiber though....

Interesting, I was hoping to pick up one of these. Maybe a rep from Challenge can chime in here. They're missing out on making money.

Oh man I wish I would have known about this before I molded my Carbon Fiber one into my rear bumper. I didnt want to ruin a perfectly good carbon fiber diffuser but these things are so hard to find.

We do have a new mold made and new supplier making these here in the USA for us. It takes some time with a new supplier as they have to experiment some with technique for every part before production begins.

As it stands the E92/E93 ones are currently in production at the new supplier but will not be released for sale until we have units on the shelf for our dealers.


Here is a quick shot i uploaded of a pre-production part with no clear coat last month. We did not give up on these for you guys!

flickr link may be dead temp.
