Cant decide on a diffuser...

Having trouble settling on a diffuser, I was going to sell my existing one and change it for the GTS-V but I am starting to have doubts the more I look at the GTS-V. It kind of looks like a weird smiley face. What do you guys think, does it go well with the performance spoiler?

Car right now.



GTS-V?

GTS-V, no doubt. I am looking to get that to compliment my front diffuser (Vorsteiner Aero)

I like the current diffuser, but I usually prefer things that retain a relatively stock appearance.

Just a photoshopped, does anyone have experience with akrapovic tips?
I hope the diffuser don't cover up the tips too much.

Between the two choices LCI + GTS-V is nicer but then again personally I'd prob go VRS or nothing!

They both look good. The GTS5 is more appealing and does seem to draw attention to those sexy exhaust tips.
