Rear diffuser m
Are all m-tec rear diffusers the same size? I need to replace my single exit diffuser on my 318ti compact with a double exit to accomodate my new exhaust..need to know if i can buy anyone off any m car?

if you don't have an M bumper, and you want the M-type then you need to buy the aftermarket m-type diffuser for the non-m bumper. if you just want more outlet space, then any diffuser off a non-M bumper with dual outlets will suffice.

Get an M3 diffuser mate, looks amazing!!!

nooo i have oem m body kit its and m-tec car just need to know if the actual diffuser (ie the black bit) NOT BUMPER are all the same the mo i only have a sngle exhaust outlet gap and iv now got an AC schnitzer exhaust which is a double therefore need a bigger exit gap...make sense!!???

Makes sense, but if you have an M-tech rear bumper, then any oem m-tech diffuser should fit. Odd that the OEM m bumper you have only has space for a single exit.....:confused:

What are the visual differences between an M-tech and standard bumper?

Bimrpwr 05-17-2007 06:25 PM

the actual bumper dont think there is a difference. Just the diffusor

Very, very little aside from the diffuser. The lower side portion near the diffuser is VERY slightly different. The standard is more rounded than the M-tech or M3 style.

i dont think the m3 diffuser fits on the compact 3. Sorry mate

i still love my montreal bleu

Pirate_copy 05-25-2007 05:29 AM

That rocks too mate

Mum loves her Red, but i think there are much better colours for the E36 (like Dakur and Montreal)

DominguesE30 05-25-2007 05:37 AM

i had red before. It was nice but its not my favourite colour. No offence pete. Ur engine makes up!

Pirate_copy 05-25-2007 05:38 AM

i agree mate, no offense taken :)

B/\/\W 05-25-2007 06:09 AM

I quite like mine being jet black, but my next bimmer I will definitely go for a more interesting colour :thumbup:

It's funny how things turn full circle. Red Bimmers were VERY popular at the end of the 80's through the 90's. Then it went 'out of vogue'. Now, however, BMW are reintroducing red Bimmers. I knew if I held on to my car long enough I would be fashionable again:sabrina:

That said, I think my convertible looks absolutely gorgeous in brilliant, SHINEY red. She is a real 'head-turner' even now:drive:

But what colour I would 'choose' for my next convertible is difficult - probably a stunning dark blue:dunno:

yup gotta love Dakar,, searched for years before I found one and iv only eva passed one other the same..but it was totally certainly draws a crowd an people turn where eva u it!! My ol' mans just ordered the new Alpine white, he's still deciding whether to get the roof done in a contrasting trying to talk him out of it! he wanted the car red with a black roof..i reckon with the hard roof it would have made it look like some dodgy 70's car...
