Most aggressive rear diffuser?

I looked at some pics and there doesn't seem to be any real aggressive rear diffuser. The most aggressive I seen is probably the platte forme one. Any other possible diffuser I'm missing? I know the varis system 2 also but it's still a bit too simple for me for the price.

Varis. But you said it wasn't aggressive enough for the price. That's why I said challenge, which is much cheaper. Not sure anything hangs lower than the varis

i think the vorsteiner GTS-V rear diffuser is pretty darn aggressive although it doesnt hang low. can be had for cheap on ebay.



another rarely talked about diffuser is the Platte Forme/ Downforce one.





Exotics Tuning looks similar to Vorsteiner GTS-V in my opinion and they are having one-off stock clearance

I'm not sure, been looking at Varis and it doesn't seem too low to me. I was hoping for a diffuser like j's racing I had on my S2000

My point of reference is the varis' fin. It's supposed to hang lower than the rear diff. In the pic of the platteforme one, doesn't seem to hang below the rear diff.

With that said, I think the varis and platteforme are the 2 most aggressive looking ones, and both are at about the same price point. Comes down to preference. I like how the varis looks over the platteforme. If you want to go down a level in price, then I like the challenge

yea I'm going to have a really aggressive looking M3, so looking for a diffuser to match. I am going to get either Varis 2 lower try or the Platte Forme. Now I'm seesawing back and forth. Platte forme is unique and don't see it very often. I also want to make my own diffusser that hangs a lot lower afterwards.

A bit hard to see with the glare, but here's the Downforce diffuser:





We are a Downforce retailer (around the block from us), let me know if you'd like one for your M3 also.
