Wanted:Alpina or Carbon Rear bumper diffuser

Any of you guys/gals have any leads on some fancy bits for the rear end? I have literally searched the world and come up empty handed. I am in love with the alpina part, but carbon is also nice. If anyone had any thoughts on sourcing something like what is shown, let a guy know

I meant the last pic! The pic of the Black X3, the diffuser with the fins, which one is that?

It looks like those were made by a company that does carbon parts on eBay. They still make parts for the x4 but it says no longer available for anything x3

Which eBay seller? Let's ask them if they can make us some diffusers!

Sorry guys - you canīt have a - working - dffuser. There are parts obstructing any "diffuser airflow".

If you are looking for an aggressive=heavy rear cover/heckblšnde with - a bit childish - 4 exhausts, it is possibel.

Best I have seen so far, is the M Performance exhaust system with two settings - legal/illegal for X4. Picture enclosed.

Iím a kid at heart still, so yes Iíll be doing dual exhaust as well as a nonfunctional diffuser. We can argue about the effectiveness of said diffuser, however I find that silly in reality.... mostly because there are very few actual working diffusers on modern vehicles. I have studied aero for my play car for years. Point being, I want the look without the obvious lack of function. Thanks

Also I should have mentioned for x3 as the x4 already had a dual offering at some point, as you mentioned.

I may be interested in joining in a possible group buy. I have always wanted some aero parts for the X3, even if just for looks.
