yea installation was really easy too... just a little 3m tape and the screws match up well underneath the car. If you have the akra then setting up your tips to match up might take a while but any other exhaust you should be fine.

Not much to be honest I just put some along the top and edges of the diffuser... 3m tape a whole roll is probably 15 bucks

Thanks again for your inputs! You have great mods! By the way, we almost have the same mods. Although my M3 E92 is in Silverstone II. I have just installed Vorsteiner CF Lip spoiler, CF Hood Vents, ZCP Rear Spoiler, OE Performance Grilles, Matte Black M3 badge, CF Roundels. Upcoming Akra Slip On, Akrym CF Rear Diffuser, OE CF Mirror Caps.

It actually looks like it is matte gray not back, anyway I took the car to the body shop today and they showed me a Ferrari 430 diffuser in matte black which was darker defiantly looked much better in color so I decided to get it painted. Once they are installed I will post the pictures. But here what both the lip and diffuser looks like

The build quality of the matte finish looks kinda raw and rough. I think you made the right decision just to paint them. Please post some pics after. Good luck!

My car is Alpine White. I'm painting the diffuser matte black (darker than the picture) and I'm thinking alpine white for the front lip to match the car. I stayed all night yesterday on Photoshop trying to see how it will look like but I'm still not a 100% sure.

hey guys this diffusor is beautiful....

however its agressive, you need to have a 90mm exhaust setup and some kind of trunk so itll blend

my 2 cents.
