M5 diffuser

Hi,
Right now I have 550 diffuser with quad 90mm tips. Thinking about getting m5 diffuser. Planning to paint it in white and keep the insert piece black.
What you guys think? or should I keep 550 diffuser?really can't decide..
And do you know if it is hard to move the tips to fit with m5 diffuser?

I love the M5 diffuser. Getting it myself.

Youd prob have to get your tips/exhaust rewelded to fit the m5 diffuser

Given that you already have some CF on the car I would look into some of the other CF diffuser options.

I like the M5 diffuser, might mold it to my M sport bumper but I'm not sure yet. Photoshopped one below.



I guess i won't mold it. It doesn't look that great, maybe it's my photoshopping lol

I already insalled vorsteiner diffuser
these are just the exhaust tips, bought them from Russia, you won't find them here. And any muffler shop can install the tips.

I have a 2013 550xi with the M5 diffuser on. There is a plastic piece on the 550 that needs to be trimmed for the M5 diffuser to fit. Very easy to do and diffuser snaps right on!!!

Where's the best place to get the M5 diffuser and how hard is it DIY?? I am getting my muffler delete with quad tips this weekend but didnt have time to get the diffuser so I am cutting mine to make way for the tips. Wanted to order the M5 diffuser and throw it on after myself though.

I ran quad tips also. Get ready for hell of a drone between 1300-1800 RPM. I am looking into a J pipe or performance mufflers to eliminate drone.

Can you post a sound clip of yours? I'm gonna mention it to the shop this weekend and see if they can do something to reduce it there, maybe a J pipe as well. Wanted to first see how bad it really is. The clips I see on youtube arent so bad.

I've had quad tips for the past year. No drone at all. I bought mine from cyba, a site sponsor.

Will these CYBA tips fit behind stock muffler and M5 diffuser or will they stick out too far?
