Rear diffuser for M3?

Is there one available that is NOT in carbon fiber? Thanks,

You can do the Vorsteiner rear diffuser in partial CF and paint the entire piece if you do not want exposed CF.

We don't recommend pre-painting these parts as paint on such a large piece can get damaged during shipping. For smaller items like reflectors, grills and spoilers, it's not an issue but we recommend having it painted locally to avoid this.

what about the ACS diffuser? it only covers up part of the rear and you don't need to have it painted to get the same style as the Vorsteiner diffuser when it's painted.

The install is very simple. We used 3M double side tape on the top part and OEM mounting bolts on the bottom.

We've got them for you

Vorsteiner E92 M3 Rear Diffuser

The great thing about all of the Vorsteiner E92 M3 parts is that they install without permanent modifications to any visible portion of the vehicle. The rear diffuser installs with the OEM bulbs underneath and double sided tape all around.

The front lip requires drilling on the bottom portion of the bumper which is not visible when removed meaning you can turn the entire vehicle back to stock if needed.

So can put this rear diffuser on my wheel ramps and put this on myself without worrying about it falling off? Bolts to OEM settings you say correct? How does this affect the fitting of an aftermarket exhaust? Car not picked up till 2nd week of July so are these in stock now? How long to ship to East Coast? Any chance of a group buy? LOL
