I have my doubts about the OE premium package diffuser. Normally, functional diffusers are under the car, not so much all the way to the rear, but after giving it some more thought, I think the exhaust/muffler design may have something to do w/ it. B/c it's rounded and mounted horizontally, at certain angles, it looks like air would move around it and hit against the diffuser...... or maybe I'm just hoping for too much?

the OEM one looks nice but I somewhat doubt it's functionality due to the location and width of the fins

I'm looking for an aftermarket one if it exists... because I plan on making my own out of fiberglass. I no longer have a muffler back there. just a pipe.

A buddy of mine saw my car for the first time and said "ooh a rear diffuser". He looked at it for a few seconds and said "too bad it's not functional". Anecdotal evidence at best, but take it FWIW LOL
