Any more pics of the diffuser? Any chance of a CT version?

Will try to get some better pictures once the weather dries up and I get the car since it's my wife's daily driver.

The diffuser looks like this but is a 2-piece version because of the shape of the CT bumper is angled, not flat like most bumpers.




The front flippers are good because it prevents the front bumper from getting scratched when parking near concrete curbs at shopping plaza's

Our car has now passesd 30k miles as my wife is commuting with it daily. She loves the car and the other day she was following me home and I noticed how aggressive the car looks in the mirror. This is without the drop or other mods we had talked about but never had time to do.

We washed it the other day and with the clear bra job, it's as clean as the day we bought her:

For some reason I couldn't see a CT in that picture...maybe I was distracted.

My wife's bumper got hit last weekend in a hit/run. Damage is basically a cracked bumper. So now debating if we should upgrade to the AIMGain rear end (ISF tips).

What do you guys think is best option?

That AIMgear bumper is badass! The question is how off it would look with just the rear bumper, cause they make sides and front too. Also, you have to spring for the exhaust tips separately which makes it one hell of an investment for rear bumper you'll still have to paint. I say you have insurance cut a check and buy an emblem-less front grill while you're at it!

Who makes the embless-less front grill?

Only way to find out is to try it, since we have to replace the bumper anyways might as well but this thing is so damn expensive because you have to buy the IS-F tips which alone are like $500. Add the bumper, international freight + paint and you are over $2k

For those who don't know, here's what it looks like:

Well, no one just yet but if you trust a body shop with a bumper that is over $1k then they should be able to make that with a sheet of ABS honeycomb.

I own a shop so we are more than capable of doing it but too lazy

That is an awesome looking rear. Can't wait to see updated pics if you decide to go this route after insurance takes care of you.

Thanks! I'm working with them right now

My ultimate goal is to have my wife's CT rear look like my NSX rear: (see the resemblance?)

Well, quick update my wife's car has passed 50k miles and not a single problem with the car!

My wife opted out of the aggressive rear saying it would attract too much attention. However I did pickup a new custom CT200h carbon fiber / flat bottom steering wheel for her car. I have not told her about it yet and will surprise her shortly

Pictures coming....
