    Hi folks, I've had a little search and cant find the answer!
    Can somebody please tell me what the difference is between a E36 M3 bumper and my E36 touring rear bumper. I can see the M3 has a diffuser and mine doesn't, is that the only difference?
    I really want one for mine but can't afford a complete M3 rear bumper, so is there anyway of making just the diffuser fit my touring?
    Thanks

    Need pics of yours to see for sure

    But an M3 diffuser won't fit a standard bumper....

    You can get replica diffusers that will fit. the difference is only slight, the M3 has that diffuser panel set in an inch or more, whilst the non M has it flush for the rear valance bit.

    The rep diffuser panels sit out more though on a regular bumper.
