E92 Varis Carbon Fiber Rear Diffuser With ARKYM Rear Diffuser

Posting pictures of the Modified ARKYM Rear Diffuser to fit over the Varis VRS Carbon Fiber Rear Diffuser.

The install was a PITA because the instructions were in Japanese and we had to rely on the pictures.

We modified the ARKM Rear Diffuser by removing the three fins in the middle to fit over the VRS Diffuser.

Pictures and close up fitment are below.

It really looks aggressive now with the AKRA Carbon Tips

I know LOL

I wasn kinda iffy about putting a rear diffuser under a rear diffuser but the end results is not over exagerated at all or over done.

I think because the ARKYM is painted gloss black and also the design that makes it matte well with the VRS unit.

Unfortunatley I dit not take any pictures of the fabrications my Bad. LOL

I was so excited that I fogot to take pictures when I put it on the car.

But all it took is my handy Angle Grinder a little bit of test fitting back and forth and a can of gloss black paint to hide the trims under the diffuser.

Fab jobs are so rewarding cause very few if any can copy it.

I love the rear stance but 2 diffusers is a little too much for my taste.

Sorry, but I'm not a fan. Your car was so clean and aggressive. Now it's too much IMO.
