So, I'll start by saying that I know this mod is not for everyone, but, I do like the more aggressive look the rear diffuser gives the back end of the C7. I have been looking at the ACS composite diffusers and for me they seem to work....... the image of the vette happens to be the same color as mine, and, I think it decently pulls off the look. Thoughts? Yay or Nay? Anyone have then installed? The install (utube) seems very simple....

I’ve been sitting on the fence with this one Paul. I find on some cars it doesn’t really look great. Although on this one in the picture it looks very good. Maybe it’s the widebody models vs the narrower Stingray body. Not sure.

I’m considering putting on the entire carbon fibre lower facia piece with the molded in diffusers.
The ones added to this car above look pretty straight forward to install. I saw some vids on it too.

If you like it... go for it 👍

I like them. ACS sells them as a single or dual set. A little on the pricey side but with ACS stuff fitment Ive read is great. No need to remove anything and back of bolting hardware can be reached from behind. Comes with drilling template too.

ddgermann, I also thought about getting the one piece diffuser fascia its very nice, but, as I dont think I will keep the car for more than 18-24mos I will more than likely simply go with the add ons........ frankmp, the white hood and roof stripe really looks sharp overtop the blue.....Graham, if you like the diffusers, then they are going on .... lol

Got this out of Covette Magazine back in 2016. For some reason the colour attracted my attention.
Note the diffuser fins are painted to the car colour. Rims as well. The article mentions the rims were hand painted but no mention of how the diffuse was painted
Don't think is would show very much on Derek's car though (Black on Black)
Interesting to think about though

I like everything about that picture Richard. As this is your colour I can see why you do too.
The contrast on the diffusers against the black looks great. Wonder how it looks from behind...
Love the wheels and marker lights too.
Like Paul I’m not sure if I’m keeping the car for much longer so I’ve put off adding these.
As I personally prefer the one piece carbon fibre option vs the diffusers alone due to cleaning and trying to keep the ooze from leaking out of the seams... the cost of it was the hold up. With my black car... every little drop of fly crap shows so this source of gunk showing and the constant wiping made my decision.
Do you guys notice the little streak of water that runs off you your mirrors and down your doors every time you wash your car? Maybe once right... for me it’s a minimum of 3 times I have to wipe up the door after. Even with using the master blaster. Uggg. Black cars....

Yup.... Mirror drip is always a problem. My C6 was the same way. It use to run down from the fuel door as well. My C7 doesn't do that....

GET IT! I did it too. Mine was an easy install. Gets lots of comments and folks taking pics. Still thinking about the striping on the edges. Need to find crystal red adhesive strips to do it right.
Don't worry so much about the money....you can always make more.
