New Hamann Style Diffuser

Before and After pic. I forgot to take a dead on straight pic from the rear, so I had a side shot. I KNOW THE TIPS LOOK CROOKED, but they are not. In the first pic, the tips look relatively fine. They are just "turned" slightly. Kind of looks like a less dramatic version of the IS-F. Both left and right mufflers do this. The way I took the picture makes it look very awkward but in person that is not the case at all! It is a custom exhaust set up, but they are 100% coordinated with left and right. Looking straight behind, they look really, really good. The diffuser helped hide the helmholtz chambers.

The Hamann diffuser was purchased from Autofans on ebay. I have to say fitment is 9/10. Pretty damn good. Used existing screw location under the middle of the center bumper. Sides were tacked in with small screws and some 3M tape. I am very, very pleased with it. Only paid something like 280 shipped.

Looks nice man!

I put my order for the h-style diffuser yesterday. Not with autofans but with thejumbodepot. Was $265 shipped.

Hope it will fit as good as yours. I guess they all come from the same manufactory though.

Hey I gave a heads up. Think of it as an optical illusion. It looks good when I look at it.

Must be the pics, but the entire diffuser will not budge at all. Each side has two screws (4 overall)..


Looks like this underneath the sides:

Thanks! I think you can't go wrong with the fitment, seriously. It took me no longer than 10 minutes to put it on, and that's no joke, either! It all lined up where it needed to be and the screw mounts under the center of the bumper were 100% where they needed to be.

My spoiler is from a different seller, forget which one, but fitment on that one is great too and the carbon fiber weave looks exceptionally well. No fading or anything of any sort!

Looks good. Get those LCI's asap and stagger the tips a bit. Chop the inner tip and extend it past the outer one.

LCIs should hopefully be shipping today! I will be back at my home in VA this Friday so I will put them on and have them coded in. Yeah, the stagger is something I need to do. It would make it look better and correct the shape of it. The tips are already "attached" to the actual pipe so it would be a super quick fix.


Stand by!!!

It would make a world of difference. I just modded my corsa setup with custom staggered tips to replace the limp dick corsa ones and it makes all the difference. lol
