M performance diffusor

Does anyone have some pic of m performance diffusor for 550? I want it to fit with quad tip...

And on the first pic, is the diffusor painted or they sell it like this?

I'm waiting for pics of the single twin exhaust (520-528) version.

Pretty sure the white is painted.

Here's a rough outline of what it should look like according to realoem.net. I'm gonna be ordering it today, so I'll post pics as soon as I install it.

Cool. What is the part number for the 550 one and what was the cost. TIA and keep us posted.

I added the quad pipes to my 535 last year and the mod came out great.

no, they are not OEM
I believe there are no oem quad tips

These are German tips, I bought them in Russia

Bump to anyone who has gotten this. I just got mine Wednesday and it came primed ready for paint. Questions are, there was sort of a rubber gasket and some metal clips included w it and no instructions and I have no clue what for. And what are your opinions on paint scheme?

All gloss black...
Half gloss black and the rest the color of the car...(dark graphite I)
All of it the color of the car....
Half of it matte black and the rest the color of the car....
Or all of it matte black...?

I've been debating it hard since I ordered it last week and still haven't decided. Gonna paint it this weekend. On my e90 I painted the diffuser half the color of the car (sparking graphite) and the other half matte black and looked good. Still on the fence. Any suggestions would help.

I'd keep it matte black or a semi-gloss black for contrast.

When the diffuser arrived was it a black primed color?

Thanks. Did you ever paint it, or just left it like this? Is the color the same as the stock M-Sport Diffuser?

I would like to see the 550i M-Sport Version as I am considering putting M6 Mufflers with Quad Tips on my 535i.
