Rear Diffuser

Is anyone else not crazy about the rear diffuser? I think it has too much plastic.

I'm ok with it. It might be one of those things that looks worse in photos because of all that flash photography most people use. It overexposes black areas and makes plastic stand out because it reflects off plastic. That's my thinking at least

In any case, a carbon fiber diffuser replacement will look amazing on the C7!

Someone should photoshop a CF diffuser on the car.

I hope you're right... CF should be an option, I don't care how expensive it is.

I've seen a photoshop of it painted body color and liked it a whole lot better than the current photos. But will wait until I get to see one in real life before passing judgement.

Stock looks good... not overly aggressive and not too subtle.

Some of my pics:

CFM like on a (my) 45th... Carbon Flash Metallic, baby.

The hood louvers are also the same... CFM is optional.

That looks A LOT better than the plastic on the test mules.

Cfm looks great on anything with color contrast.

Like said an aftermarket cf upgrage would look sick with the exposed cf targa top!
