Unhappy 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?
Cheers!!

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.

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.....

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

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.

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

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

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