Does anyone have a Challenge Diffuser that fits snugly on their bumper?

I have talked to Challenge, and they have super cool about me sending my diffuser back in to have them modify it so that it can fit better.

But before I take this off of my car and send it out during the height of the Holidays and shipping delay season, I am wondering if anyone here has installed it and not had any "gap" issues?

Hopefully these pics will illustrate my issue (the first pic has tape that has not stuck well):

I had my challenge diffuser installed a few weeks ago and don't see any gaps. I'll try to post pictures soon.

As I mentioned previously in our PM, the fitment on yours does seem off and should be fixed once we make a trim adjustment to the tape flange area that we have done on more recent production. It also looks like it could have been installed further rearward based on photos. We will of course test fit it here before it goes back to you to be sure of its fitment. We also now include installation instructions for the best fitment.

You guys have been nothing short of pros during this! I think it may have been my particular diffuser and how it was installed. I am actually going to go diffuser-less so that my Akra exhaust tips show more because they compliment my bronze wheels well!
