Considering one of these color-matched rear diffusers

http://www.ebay.com/itm/PAINTED-BMW-...cee968&vxp=mtr

I know, I know, it's coming from China, but it's the only place I can find that will send you a color-matched one. I've bought plenty of items from Taiwan/Hong Kong/China over the years, can't say I've regretted it once. I ordered some carbon fiber splitters for the front that I'm going to color-match and I think it will look really good.

Whaddya think??

Why do you need to buy one already painted? Just get a good quality one and have a body shop paint it? Then you can be assured the paint matches.

Hmm, hadn't considered that. They could actually paint both the diffuser and the splitters at the same time.. Hmm..

Yup. Just make sure whatever you buy that you fit it all first. If you paint a part and it doesn't end up fitting, you're stuck with it.
