Best fitting Diffuser and front splitter?

Opinions needed!
Anyone care to comment on what they think is the best fitting diffuser and front splitter? Fitting is key, no gaps or tons of modifications necessary.

???? thanks

Great thread! Gives someone a great visual of what they look like and that is super! However, still does not answer which one actually fits the best out of the box. Hell maybe they all fit great!

Last time I bought a diffuser it looked great in the pics and after alterations, sanding, and multiple fitment issues it looked good on my car too. Just trying to avoid that.

Oh well, thanks for the link.

I'd say 3D Design rear diffuser is one of the best fitments out there.

Every diffuser needs a little finagling. However, I'd say this diffuser is the best fitting one "out of the box" as you say, but I'm biased.

I have had great luck fitting Arkym products. Front lip, diffuser and trunk spoiler were all spot on!

Any benefits to adding a diffuser or is it purely for looks?

Most of the diffusers you see here are for looks and do nothing for aerodynamics of the car.

Spot on. Glad I could help.
I was really impressed with fitment, so you should be good.

Agreed, I was told the same, but they make the car move from OEM girl/grandpa approved to a more bad boy, sleek, racer look. IMOP.
Don't forget the black side markers, reflectors, mirror caps and front black grill!
Throw in an exhaust and were no longer girl/grandpa approved...

Once I get it and install it. I will post up some pics.

Now which axel back exhaust should I get?

ESS
DINAN
Gintani
Remus

Still deciding on which diffuser to get too. Go with an Akra or MPE exhaust.
