Default Varis (VRS) Diffuser

Good Morning Fellow M3 Drivers:

Yet another diffuser thread.

Has anyone installed the Varis/VRS System 1& 2 rear diffuser?

http://www.vrs-aero.com/bmw/m-series...tem/index.html

It appears to be a real diffuser, reaching forward ahead of the differential in line with the M3 plastic panels covering the fuel tank. Hopefully it will help stop the parachute effect of the rear bumper.

Anyone?

Varis makes good stuff that is actually wind-tunnel tested, so you can be confident it's a good piece.

Only problem with them is that they are not inexpensive pieces...

I would like to get one as well. Maybe we can do a GB?

I've been interested in them for a while and would also be very interested if you could get a discount for a few pieces.

Sub'd to see where this goes. I like the piece, but I just can't bring myself to pull the trigger at that price point.

I am still eyeing the AGT styling version of the under diffuser.

Am I converting this properly, $900? Because if so, honestly that seems pretty decent for what it is.

The full system 1 and 2 retail is over $2k so I'm not sure which you were looking at.

That sounds like the price for the 3rd piece between the tips.

Are you just looking at "Rear Diffuser System 2" for 95,000 yen?

I found that their official sales dealer in the US has the whole kit for $1995.00. But sounds like these are not in stock, and they would be made to order and shipped out accordingly.
