Hello fellow members,

I received Slimms first Carbon Fiber Diffuser today.
Overall the craftsmanship and quality of this diffuser are great. I won't have a chance to mount it on my car until friday but I will update this post immediately once it's installed.

I took some pictures of it tonight right away when I got home but it was already dark out so I have no daylight shots yet. I'll try and take some tomorrow morning before I leave home.
In person the diffuser is way darker than in the pictures below as I had to use the flash and the carbon reflects it quite strongly.
Enjoy!

That's going to contrast very well with your silver. Looking forward to installed pics!

Thank you!
I'm looking forward to installing it! :D

The fins are actually matte black. When looking at the diffuser in normal lighting conditions the transition between the matte black and carbon fiber are almost non visible. I was actually surprised by how well they blend in.

In that 2nd picture you posted, that is very apparent! :)

How much are these diffusors?

Can't wait to see some photos of it on your light colored beast...all the other photos posted have been on the darker color M5's. Please provide several different angles to include a direct shot from behind at about 3 to 4 car lengths distance.

Cheers.

It's at the paint shop right now and will be ready for pick up Friday morning.

It was supposed to be done Monday which would have been perfect as I could have mounted it last night but something in their booth broke last week. :Thumbdown:

Friday isn't that far away :thumbsup:

pdudek, I take it you are going to paint the CF diffuser to match the color of your car....is that correct?
