Rear diffuser E type carbon - anyone try this?

I'm thinking of swapping out my rear diffuser I saw one that looks just like this on a car online in a YouTube video and it looks nice I found what appears to be the same thing on eBay for about $500 I'm curious if anyone has tried this and what they think of it.

It's on the video where a guy was demo and straightening his AC Schnitzer exhaust the rear diffuser in the video appears to be the one I'm looking at here on eBay or at least very similar



i'm not sure I could go for an exhaust that loud it sounds cool and videos but I wonder on daily driving if it would get annoying. I have the small OEM looking carbon fiber spoiler on the back of my Mediterranean blue car I thought this would complement the spoiler and look nice.

I don't know if this splitter would work with my OEM exhaust or if I need to modify my tips I don't really want to spend a ton of money on a cat back exhaust I just want the diffuser.

I have a non carbon version on my car (had to get it to fit around my remus) fits great and is easy to install
If you decide to get one you'll definitely want to change the tips since the opening is much larger.

Can I change just the exhaust tips on the M550 exhaust ?

I see no reason why you couldn't

Not easily. Have a look in the exhaust part of this forum and you will see pictures on it. I think you basically need to cut off the end of the stock pipes near the muffler and weld new ones on that you can then put tips onto

I'm currently working on this mod, and will post once completed. I included an image of what it looks like under there now on our cars - M550.

Keen to see how it turns out. I have res delete and that's enough of a sound mod for me. I would like to replace the tips though. Just the tip

I too have a res delete with an x-pipe and feel the sound is enough for me as well, we think the same here.
