PLEASE HELP newbie. Front lip and rear diffuser

Just purchased a 2011 C300 sport and wasn't really looking to do a modifications. After driving the car the itch has spread. I'm looking for a front carbon lip and rear diffuser that has the right fit. I've had horrible experience in the late 90's with my delsol and a overseas kit.


What I'm confused about is that every vendor states Yes for a 2011 C300 but says AMG Only. Does anyone makes lips and rear diffusers for regular 2011 c300? Any links would help. I'd try an overseas company if anyone can vouch for the quality.


Thank you.

Is your C300 a sport model? If it's true, any rear diffuser for AMG will fit it. My suggestion is to get one with big fins. I just finished with my diffuser and exhaust tips installation, looking for to post some pics.

Heres a rear diffuser install thread I followed this for my 2012 that i just did this past friday.

do you want carbon fibre or just a black plastic OEM diffuser? I'd say go black plastic like the OEM a lot of people have fitment issues with the carbon fibre. It's a lot cheeper and the fitment will be perfect.

tip's are the most expensive part of this whole thing. Depends on what you want do you want ones that say AMG or just regular tips? the ones that say AMG are like $299USD. You can get other ones cheeper depends on your budget I can send you a link of the ones i bought. The shop that I went to they said they were the best quality ones they've seen. Mine are polished stainless steel very good quality i paid $400 Canadian, from a US seller on ebay.

If you find a good custom exhaust shop they can actually make you the tips taking 4 that are a similar size and shape to the AMG ones and weld them to a Y or h pipe.

Can you send me the link to the OEM diffuser along with the tips. Thanks

Funny. If there was 2 mods I wish I could take back, it would be the front lip and rear diffuser. While it does look nice, I have doubts it'll last the full 10-year/155k miles I plan to take my w204.

Curious why you say it wouldn't last 10 years? Thanks

...just a feeling since it is not an OEM part. Hopefully I'll be mistaken.
