Type GT diffusor...

This diffusor looks interesting, something different. Made in Japan I believe.

What's the price of this thing?

The diffuser looks great. I was actually thinking that I'm going to be screwing up my car's underbody air flow since the GruppeM exhaust will leave a gap where the stock exhaust filled that space.

The only contact they have on their site is the phone number from their Tokyo shop, I even tried to send emails to info & office at sunbeam-ex.jp but they don't have a mail server setup.

I'll try to call tomorrow, hopefully get some info. I'll also ask them for shipped quotes for US West & East coasts and I'll post those.

cost?
does it fit with the OEM exhaust?

I think it looks great but looks like it may overheat the exhaust sinceit covers all but the tips.

Sunbeam Corp. is the main site and Sunbeam Ex is a sub site.
They have email address on Sunbeam Corp. website, info@sunbeam-corp.co.jp

Doesn't look that bad either. lol.

Depends on the price for me...yeah, CF would be way sweeter, but if it is reasonably priced, I might consider it.

Doesn't go with the rest of the car. The gaps are hideous and make it look like a cheap civic.

i'm not a huge fan either. i think there is just a little too much going on there. i still think vorsteiner makes the best diffuser for our cars. not only is it CF, but its proportionate. that is just a little too big and gaudy for my taste.

Wheels in the pic look pretty cool... the diffuser looks like a tack-on, just doesn't seem to mesh well with the car. Understated it is not.

I called the shop, the person understood English, but didn't really speak much. They told me that on Sunday someone who speaks English would be there. I'll post when I have price info.

About the preference, to each his own, like Vorsteiner, get the VRS.

The VRS Diffuser doesn't do much aerodynamically, it's more of an aesthetic add-on, I don't think it's dry CF anyway (someone can correct me if it is). I'm not a big fan of everything CF, so I'd get this one to try out. Their blog says they were planning a CF one (that was back in May).

I actually like that. hopefully that'll improve aero on the car. plus, it looks kinda Ferrari-ish...
