Vorsteiner rear diffuser type I + Varis rear diffuser?

Hi all. I plan to buy Varis rear diffuser, just the part that is under the exhaust. http://www.vrs-aero.com/e92r_dif_1.html
I'm wondering if Varis rear diffuser will fit if I already have the Vorsteiner type I diffuser on my car.


Currently on my car:
http://www.vorsteiner.com/bmw/3Serie...-Diffuser.aspx

Any advice would be appreciated.

Regards,
Tee

Unfortunately the varis wont fit with that diffuser. BTW Where you plan to order your Varis parts. We are an authorized Varis dealer and have a very close working relationship with them. Pm me if you need a price qoute.

not really its too much going on a diffuser under a diffuser...

Sorry to bump an ancient thread, but I am also interested in adding the Varis bottom diffuser tray to my Vorsteiner diffuser. What needs to be modified to make this work? How difficult is this modification? I was going to make a thread, but search was my friend.

It doesn't work. If you read above, they are talking about modding an Arkym one to work. Either way, it isn't worth doing.

...less is more. Pick one or the other.

Unless, of course, you are going to use that piece for what it is intended i.e. pure track car.

You could probably mod the VRS one the same way they modded an Arkym one. It basically means that you have to cut the fins off. It's not a totally "clean" install as some of the cuts will be relatively visible.

Exactly. I tried it and killed a nice diffuser in the process.
