M3 Rear Bumber and Diffuser

Hello Everyone,

For some reasons, the M3 bumber appears similar to every other E36 bumbers to me, except for the rear diffuser. Is this accurate? Or is there more to it? Please explain.

Thanks

Actually if you pay close attention to the sides of the diffuser there are indentations on the bumper, which make the diffuser not stick out as much, makes it look a lot cleaner instead of slapping on one of those M Diffusers made for Non-M Bumpers.
Trust me, I went through both, and I like the M3 rear bumper a lot better.
Hope this helps.

I had both, and now that I have the real M3 rear bumper and not just the cheesy diffuser, I will never look back.

The real M3 bumper is edgier and cleaner, and makes a dramatic difference in the look of the rear of an E36!
