Nice piece. Those exhaust covers should come carbon to match, especially since this thing costs 2k

$2200 from Euroactive.

You're right, the exhaust covers should have been in carbon fiber as well. I'm not sure if I should paint it matte black or carbon fiber vinyl wrap it. If i wrap it, I'm afraid it might not stand up to the heat from the exhaust tips. What should I do? Suggestions?

Grats! That diffuser is a work of art, can't wait to see pics of it installed.

I'd vote for painting the exhaust covers matte black.

Did you get the ACS exhaust also? I opted out of the diffuser, am installing the 'racing tip' mufflers in a few weeks. They apparently do not require the diffuser. Liked the ACS diffuser, but did not like cutting the body.

Did not get the ACS exhaust. Exhaust will be stock with aftermarket tips to fill in the exhaust covers better.

I was thinking about getting it copied. It looks so simple. What about out of fiberglass? Would you guys buy it?

Do not place vinyl near your exhaust.It will fail there. If CF is what you want there have them at least laminated in real CF along with higher end resin such as Epoxy or vinyl-ester.

well... I have done some diffuser wrap with no problem tho(335 mtech, x5m, e46 m3s). the heat is not enough to melt the vinyl unless you got some crazy sizes tips that would touch to the vinyls

I not referring to the diffuser, only the tips surrounds which he received painted.

Wraps like Dinoc etc. look ghetto in my opinion.

took off the stock tips. Tried the 3" diameter tips on, but they were still somewhat small. So, I'm looking for 3.5" diameter tips. It will fill the exhaust covers better.
