Arka CF Tips on MW

I am trying to decide to go with either CF or titanium tips for the Akra Evo on my MW E93. Can anyone share pics of CF and titanium Akra tips on MW?

I am leaning toward CF, but need to see how it would look. I do not have a rear splitter.

TIA!

Sorry, without a rear diffuser. So I can see how the CF tips would look against the factory rear bumper without any additional pieces.

I have the Akra CF tips on my MW e92 M3 and the look (with CF roof, OEM mirror covers, and OEM front splitters) - get them and you won't regret it

I should have got carbon...especially as my M3 has lots of CF trim.

But anyway here is some with the Titanium tips.

I have no CF (e93, and no add-ons), but I still think CF tips look better against the white paint.

Looks great, go for it. I thought about going CF on mine but, thought it would clash with a CF diffuser. I've now seen a couple of M's rocking the CF tips and diffuser and it actually looks much better than I thought it would.

That car looks outstanding. The CF tips really set off the rear valence and under tray! Perfectly executed!
