Gotta pickup deals for these cars when you can because these quality parts rarely come up forsale.

Totally understand ur situation as my bro is in search of a job as well, so his ISF is staying stock for now.

As long as u got a good deal on the Brabus spoiler, then u got nothing to lose.. Otherwise, I would just save the money until u find a deal on the parts u really want. Trust me, after buying 2 diffusers, 3 set of wheels.. Blah blah.. I learned to be patient & buy the parts I want. Lol. Good luck!

Today I went about tackling the finish mounting of the diffuser... I had cut some brackets on my CNC to replace the oem brackets that no longer fit the diffuser but I made the too beefy and strong and end up not having enough room to mount the top screw that attaches to the underside of the car.

I am cutting a different set now but I am curious what other people did... shame vorstiner didn't allow you to use the oem brackets off the old diffuser.

I used the original brackets. They are in a little crooked, if I remember correctly, but they do the job and no one can see them.

If you make up some better ones maybe I can buy a set?!?

My diffuser is flush with the spare tire tub as well. It looks like the driver's side bracket is in it's proper orientation but the passenger side one is in at an angle because it interfered with the diffuser in it's original orientation.

My diffuser is held by 2 long bolts with washers & nuts. To make it sturdy, the previous owner fabricated some kind of steel tubing to go over the bolts, almost like a big straw. It's not moving at all now.
