3D rear diffuser installed

Hi All,

just installed the 3D rear diffuser. I think it goes well with the GruppeM Titanium exhaust...

cheers

How's install like? I'm assuming you had to drill into the rear bumper? Looks nice but the only thing I'd keep an eye on is the area right above the exhaust tips. You know, less clearance/space between the top of the exhaust tips & whatever bodypanel is right above it. I'd be concerned about the tips melting/rubbing against the cf diffuser but that's just my paranoid side talking.

it basically installed using double sided tape and bolt points from the undercarriage. there were 4 additional screws that had to be screwed into the underside of the bumper.

i was there throughout the installation and was keeping an eye out for what you mentioned. i'm paranoid too... ha ha...

there were some adjustments that were needed to be done by fiddling with some bolts to centre the exhaust tips and to lower them for the correct clearance.

cheers

Contact info for the 3D Design diffuser follows. They are importers of high end Japanese exhaust systems, but sounds like they have a line on 3D, as well.

ha ha... didn't start out meaning to mod my car at all... then began by a few cosmetic mods, then the tactile/feel mods, then the aural... it's a deadly virus!!!

all that's left to do before i go bankrupt is the Brembo BBK that's coming out in mid-May and a good reliable SSK (which i haven't found yet)...

unfortunately, by the time they are done, there'll be some more mods to consider... but I AM STRONG... i shall resist! ha ha...

Very nice, I decided I wanted to get a diffuser for my car after seeing yours. The contrast between AW and CF is sick, and Im afraid it wont look as good on JB.
But we'll see.

Must be nice riding in a e92 M3 in Singapore! Stands out big time.
Are cars still really expensive out there? (Did they do away with the tax?)
When I was working there in 01, I remember a Ford Escort cost like $45000 USD.
