exactly what it says... one is double sided carbon fiber and the other is only 1 sided. Then the oem weave is 1x1

Can you please tell me which specific areas you applied the 3M tape on the Arkym rear diffuser? My Arkym rear diffuser just arrived today and want to make sure I get it right the first time. Many thanks!

i have it. i love the design (i think it's the best looking one so far). i think the fitment is perfect. BUT i do not like the quaility. i have the one-sided one and if i were to have installed it right after i got it, i would've been really unhappy. maybe it's because i got it right after it was made, but it was coming apart at the top...the area where the piece that attaches to the the bumper meets the rest of the diffusor. the glue was exposed and in some areas, there wasn't any and you could see right through to the other side. nate @ C&C came to the rescue and saved the diffusor by molding the area and making it look like one piece.

AGAIN...i love the look, i just don't like the build. MAYBE i just got a really bad one. i'm open to giving them the benefit of the doubt because i like the look and fitment, but it was really bad.

slo_ guy,

Try contact the vendor you purchased from and let them know. Arkym will take care of it for you.

Which 3M double-sided tape

Who knew 3M has tons of double-sided tape options...some permanent...some not?! Here's a link to a search on Amazon...which one works best for this application of attaching the rear diffuser?

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_no...d+tape&x=0&y=0

Thanks,
