OEM Splitter + Diffuser

Anyone have any pics of a car with oem splitters up front and a diffuser in the rear? Would like to see E90 but all models can be a good reference.

I've bought oem splitters already and for some reason to me it seems as if they wouldn't look good with a diffuser on the rear. I currently have a GTS type lip but want to do away with it but if it balances out the rear diffuser better I may have to keep it and sell the oem type.

Anyone in here put an e92 exhaust system on their e90 because of diffuser fitment?

Will get a better pick later but here is my car with the OEM CF splitters. Not aware of an OEM diffuser but doesn't mean there wasn't one...

Edit: Not sure where the problem is but pics won't load for me. Will try later

pictures are horrible to load after last "maintenance"... I have to go to edit post, then re-add the pics, twice. then they work.

Not an oem one but an aftermarket one. I feel like an aftermarket diffuser would require a lip type of front piece to balance it out.

Here's the OEM splitters on my car, they're pretty suttle on Jerez.

I'd love to get a nice diffuser for my car in gloss carbon, something similarly subtle to match the splitters.

I don't have any pics straight on from the side, but I'm not sure you'd see both the rear diffuser and splitters at the same time anyway. Here's what I have - not OEM, but Turner splitters + RW Carbon Arkym style rear diffuser + OEM CF rear spoiler.

Man I was really thinking of getting the Arkym diffuser from RW but man does it really sit that far from the car. Doesnt look flush at all?

Actually I just realized that this is an older pic of the first diffuser. I was having a mounting issue and cracked that one and got a new one installed since. It is more flush than this pic, but does come out a bit past the exhaust tips.

It's a shame you are in Idaho, I have one in my garage you could try to see if it fits yours OK. I had it on my E93 for a while but I actually preferred to be able to see the tips of my MPE. The fit was not terrible, slightly better than the pictured here, but is was for sure not as good as I would have liked for the money.

Was there ever an OEM diffuser? I don't think so but find this quite surprising.

They pretty much can't both be seen at the same time, but good luck to the OP.

Here are a couple more recent pics of the replacement diffuser. It has a tighter fit to the rear bumper, though I had to expand the bolt holes slightly w/a dremel to reduce the forced strain on the bumper so the double sided tape would stick.

That one looks much better, I think I needed to do the same to the mounting holes as you mentioned, might have improved the fit on mine a little.
