Big Fin Rear Diffuser 08-11, will it look good?

I am considering this rear diffuser. On the fence. Is it too ricer? Does it look good? Wanted to get some input...











Maybe its too much and sticks out too much..?

This version looks a bit more subtle. Its totally up to you. I think you know what you like already. Something a bit more classy will stand out on your car. The Large finned diffusers might look out of place.

Yes I agree....I think your right it will look out of place. What do you have Kriston? I have searched and no one carries anything decent...

Any sources for a decent piece?

I have the same style diffuser on my car, i agree they are more "extreme" than the other options but i liked em because they were different. I wouldn't call them ricey and hope no one thinks of it as rice ! I think it needs the trunk lip to complement it tho, these pics were before i had the trunk lip

I don't mind those big fins per se. What I don't like are the added-on bits. If you think those fins are too big, though, you can always go with the more "traditional" big fins diffuser from JL Motoring (for example).

Akmatic, Thats the exact one I want! Looks REALLY killer on your car. Some cars just "wear" it well I guess, plus are also more photogenic! Do you like it overall?

I don't think JL even carries big fin anymore...

I agree the fins are too big, for my taste at least. I wanted something a bit more subtle but a little bigger than the oem. I went with Mode Carbons P31 diffuser. I think it looks great and no weird logo on it.

i've got the same one. it looks great imo.

the reason i went with it was because i wanted something that looked similar to the clk63 black series at the time.

The one like the extreme one suits the car best I think. The rest are too aggressive.

It really all depends on what mods the car has on it. It looks really good on Akmatic's car because his car looks super aggressive and can pull it off.

Slap this same diffuser on a bone stock C63 and it'll look horrendous. The third picture makes the diffuser look really tacky, in my opinion.

That's the exact problem. RW is my first choice but they don't carry it and haven't....

I have this version. It's an eBay special. I'm sorry but not sure which one it is anymore.

The fitment was good. Have had it for 2+ years now and no issues.

It's like many of the other versions but this one did not portrude to far over the exhaust tips like some of the diffusers I've seen.

I have a FL C63 and I have the RW Big Fin Diffuser on order to be delivered next week... Now that I am reading all of these posts, I am really hoping its not too big for my tastes when I see it in person...

IMO the fins are way too big. I went with this and recently got the tips extended and they're flush with the diffuser
