3D Design Diffuser vs Vorsteiner Diffuser??

Hey guys.. i am probably going ahead with the remus race exhaust.. and I plan to concurrently purchase a diffuser as well.

What do you guys think? 3D design or Vorsteiner? I like the clean and multi fin look of Vorsteiner but I heard in terms of fitment, 3D Design sits a lot tighter. Also, I like the 3D design because the CF look is very sporty. Just want to hear thoughts. Attached below are the comparison images. 1st one is Vorsteiner, 2nd is 3D Design.

Vorsteiner by far. The fins coming down inbetween the Exhaust put it on top in looks. 3D Keeps it to simple in my opinion. Hamann's is nice but not enough visible CF.

Keep in mind the VRS diffuser is CF all the way across. IND just painted the sides...on a light colored a non painted VRS diffuser almost looks like it is smiling. That being said I like the VRS better simply due to the extra fin....
