Same problem seen in the videoódiffuser does not consistently sit flush with the bumper. Havenít successfully fixed it, and itís pretty annoying when I look at it. But the diffuser is gonna melt pretty soon so idc that much anymore

Paint I can definitely get fixed, the tabs I can't.
If it makes you feel any better, Iíve done several track events with the diffuser, and it hasnít budged

I had one of these on my 2002 Tiag M3. Same issue with the fitment in that corner. Just something I lived with as it wasn't too noticeable. Plus the paint match was fine. Wasn't expecting perfect for the amount I paid. Think I got it for 190 shipped.

just fyi, anything that will be painted after oem paint really never matches unless it's blended in the surrounding panels. There's too many factors involved (type of spray gun, paint quality, environmental conditions, paint curing process, skill, etc. Always best or safer to order unpainted and have a shop blend it in to your car.

Blending more often than not turns to shit in my experience. A good shop can get very close without touching any other panels.
