One thing is the nature of the limited demand for these items that would make the pricing to be higher than what is reasonable, that's understandable. But again, somebody, somewhere thought that $1600 was a fair price for a diffuser that right now Eclipse Motors can sell -profitably I assume- for less than $500. Even that $1600 diffuser with a discount -$900- still is ridiculous.

But hey, it is all good. There is a market for both "genuine" and replica CF pieces so everybody can be satisfied, the "I pay whatever it is asked just because I have an M3" and the "Are you fucking serious?" customers.
+1 - The M3 'tax' is a bitch.

Which diffuser is $1600 anyways?
$1600 is the retail price for the 3D Japan E90 M3 diffuser. Parts from Japan are always big $$.

Im looking for a diffuser to with my Akra exhaust, but I want something more similar to the e46 M3 CSL diffuser, which is more simple and smaller then most of the ones I have seen.
