GT3 Tek Spyder diffuser Update!

I just received my GT3 tek spyder rear diffuser. Here is a quick pic I just took of the fitment. It fits great! A tiny bit of prep on it and then paint. The other pic is from their site. Please no opinions on my car until it is painted.

I think that looks pretty good

Would look even better if it didn't have the two big rubber things stuck either side of your licence plate

Danger - I was out for a cruise on my trail bike. Did 6 miles on the road fast and wanted to die. LOL

Getting painted next Thursday should have it back on over the weekend. Along with a new exhaust coming. We'll see how long I keep on this exhaust. I always wind up back with a stock S muffler. This will be my third aftermarket.

Agreed. If I didn't have a square plate I would fill up that space.

Jaay, I think it looks totally awesome and the bumperettes look good just as well.

Hey, I would love the opportunity to buy you a beer and talk cars as I will be on Long Island working for half of September.

Looks good. I've been thinking about doing this as well.

Do you have any side shots of the car with it test fitted on?

Cheers

Mark

I bought it direct from gt3tek.com I called them. Very nice and easy to deal with.

I didn't take any side shots. I will once it is on. The piece is supposed to go to paint on Thursday. So figure maybe next monday or something I should get it back.

How does it mount?

Does it mount over the original bumper? Looks good so far.

Nice. Can't wait for the finished product.
I've been debating on getting the gt3 diff but don't know how it would look like on a black car. Please post pics up when you get a chance.

Went to pick Up my diffuser today and the joke of a body shop didn't listen and painted the whole thing. Like the diffusers that are supposed to be lef flat. So take two on the paint shop.

Just installed the GT3 Tek diffuser. Fits like a glove. The paint shop made it right and flat blacked the diffusers. I like the look over all. I will take it out of the garage for some more shots maybe later on. Let me know what you think.

That looks really nice. I'm gonna pull the trigger and get one too.
All I need now is a nice front lip.
Thanks for the pics.
Now a picture from a little farther away so we can see how it flows with the car.
