Diffuser for non-MSport

Question, anyone seen anything like this...for F30 328i.a diffuser that mounts overtop of the standard bumper diffuser(non-Msport) that will allow dual tips like a 335i. The idea being, instead of having to change the entire bumper, this would mount over the existing diffuser and you simply cut the old diffuser to allow the addition exhaust tip on the opposite side. Obviously after you replace the 328i exhaust with a 335i similar.

We need more creativity coming from these body kit guys. Not many options out there. E90s and before there were always so many options. F30 non-Msport has a front bumper lip, which is great but why not do something like that for the rear. Its just as important and it allows a lot of changes without necessarily driving the cost through the roof.

If you want room for quads, Kelleners sport and AC-schnitzer have diffusors for the standard rear bumper. If you want 335i look, Bastuck sells it.

Guys, thanks so much, a few options I hadn't seen before. I sent a note to Bastuck to see if they have anyone that distributes in the US so we'll see.

I don't know the price yet of the Bastuck but how much is the Msport Bumper, because lets say its $500, I have to get it installed and painted, which is at least $500 for install and paint so now I am double. The AC and Kelleners diffuser are too expensive so hoping Bastuck is $400 or under range.

Kapkan, Kendroz, thank you both. I personally like the look of the Bastuck as a first option but of course will depend on price. I sent a msg to the guy in Chicago so we'll see cost of shipping/painting. Its just easier if I go with a diffuser overlay like these because truthfully I want to keep it low cost and simple. Plus, after the M-3/M4 come out, I am betting their may be more options on the market that I like better than the M-Sport stuff so rather wait for to see what comes around, replicating that style more. Really appreciate the help.
