The attached picture shows the left side fitment with the diffuser held up to the car as snug as possible, there is a quarter inch gap.
Mine looks exactly the same way. Had one of the best body shops in Houston try and fix it with no luck.

Feel free to contact me by pm or email. We had a few older diffusers that needed a trim update on the back tape flange area. We sent a revised trim one to the other customer or have done the revised trim for those that it applied to. Thank you

So, finally, I got my car back today from BMW after they had installed some of my OEM and aftermarket Carbon Fiber parts. Upon inspection, I noticed that the Challenge Diffusor they had installed had roughly 1/8in gap on the left side and around 1/16in gap on the right side on top where it meets the bumper. They agreed to try and correct it but seeing this has new issues with fitment, is it even do-able considering it is Carbon Fiber and is already adhered with M3 tape? or should I send it back for a replacement? Thanks...

Sorry for the sh*tty camera phone pics...

Your part was test fit on a bumper here and has all the updated trims from production as well. You should only see the thickness of the tape if you looked at it directly from above like in your photos. The diffuser can be reinstalled with new tape applied FYI. I'll shoot you a PM on it to discuss how it was installed.

I think we only made like 3 or so in 2x2 in the first batch. I try to at least keep one in 2x2 on the shelf along with other 1x1 for the E90 since most aren't matching to a carbon roof like E92 guys with 1x1
