Ya the quality is pretty amazing. I did have some issues with fitment, but with some extra 3M tape I got it to be pretty flush.



Here are a few more pics of the diffuser. If you manage to get ahold of one, I would recommend putting something on the part of the diffuser that is directly above your exhaust pipes. I got mine used and it had a little bit of clear coat damage. I decided to put some gold tape above it to reflect the heat. A little overkill, but it does look pretty cool and it's functional (especially when I'm gonna be catless)

Come on Evan... What would Fran think of you now?! (7th grade math teacher)
I'm aware of the math. Come on Charlie, at least I've done some pretty intense math in my days. The question is more are you better off having over 93 octane for a few bucks more or the same price. At the place that I went, the price for 93 and 100 is pretty close, so I usually just go for the 100.

lol ya. 93 is pretty expensive at that place. You should try the super station in Sunol; it's priced competitively and cheaper most of the time.

I'll check it out! I'm glad there are other options out there. Using 93 in the Cayman?

Whaaaat?! That's awesome! Gotta check it out some time. Maybe a race fuel run some time and you can show me some of these roads up here. I feel like I have a good grasp of the driving roads in the Berkeley Hills and Orinda area, but I know there's a lot more out there.

If we meet up sometime, I'll show a couple in the south bay and one in Oakland Hills. It's more exciting than the Berkeley / Lafayette side IMO.

I'm down. I've been on a few nice roads on the other side of the bay also. Woodside road is probably my fav over there.
