:smile: Just like a proud parent :smile:

I'm really surprised you're not concerned about driving in public and having to stop for a caffeine fix (parking lots have lots of dangerous characters you know--bmws, fords :surprise: chevs:surprise: :grin: )

In an aside, I'm really going into withdrawal here. It's only Jan 18 and I've got to wait till APRIL before I can even start thinking about getting Schwarzie out of storage.

Every time it snows, I go into the garage for the snowblower, give her a pat and reassure her that "not too much longer, not too much longer" :crying:

edit--sorry, I didn't mean to hijack your thread :wink:

That's one of the best diffusers I've seen! When are you putting it on??
Can't wait to see pictures of the fitting and the finished article.

Is the rear diffuser on the 171 not separate from the rear bumper like the 172? NVM I see. On the 172 it is attached to bumper with 12 push tabs and 4 push pins, no tools required. I would like a direct fit one using OEM mounting points but they are all same cheap Taiwan quality.

The rear diffuser is, to my info, on the r171 55, secured with a few bolts and separate from the bumper.

Well I see Chromtec sells one for mine but looking at the pic and zooming in on the mounting tab I can see where they are just laminating cf to OEM part. Its a nice laminating job I will say, but not worth over $1000 for. I have exact same OEM 55 part that I am thinking about laminating myself but I would first do the 350 OEM diffuser for practice. I have some laminating skills and I think this would be perfect project to hone them on. You need to quit posting all this stuff man, I have more projects now than I can keep up with thanks to all your mod posts:grin: I think Chromtec is a good site for those interested in doing 172 mods as they have more products available for them. I shall post link to this site in the 172 mods section.

If you send them the part, it is cheaper. Ask Patrick at Chrometec for that option :D
