the manual says you should paint part of the rear diffuser to body color. Anyone have done so? Thinking I will just leave it unpainted.

My M sport rear diffusor is in glossy black in comparison.

LMAO at this ----> If the front M Performance Aerodynamic Package (front splitter) is installed, either the M Perfromance rear spoiler part number 2 293 329 or part number 2 240 832 will also need to be installed.

lol oh really why is that...to get you spend more money...yeah ok thanks

But anyway good find, and thanks for the instructions Ill be retrofitting to M Performance bumper and Id like to get the Lip as well.

Retail pricing for the components that make up this kit:
Front Spoiler: $600
Rear diffuser: $500
Side splitters: $190 per side
Trunk spoiler: $250
Betalink adhesive (for front spoiler): $40

having installed the whole kit, 3 hours is a pretty raw deal....if I was a tech I wouldn't touch it for anything less than 5.

FYI for anyone attempting this install themselves. you WILL need a plastic rivet tool
you can get it at your Harbor freight for under $20

According to BMW this for Aerodynamic reasons...a valid reason believe it or not

Pricing looks pretty good. These look to be all plastic parts. Concepts were in carbon i thought.

Lots of good info. Was able to install myself. Definitely need the riveting too mentioned. Glad there was a harbor freight nearby that I was able to pickup from.

Hard to see, but got the side sills installed as well. Definitely would have been easier and fast if I had a lift. But overall three hours is about right.

Sneak peak until I get a day off.

If anyone here has installed it themselves, what would you rate the difficulty of this install out of 10? I'm thinking of buying the front splitter, spoiler, and rear diffuser soon. Was wondering if I should DIY or bring it into a shop.

Anyone know a rough estimate how much BMW would charge per hour to install ? I'm thinking of having an autobody shop paint the bumper, sides then having BMW install it.

Is this kit just for M-Sports or would it fit on a Sport line 335i?
