I have a Z28 carbon fiber diffuser on the way right now. If you do decide to buy one just be warned.... I bought it from "in stock" inventory in mid FEB and it just shipped earlier this week....
Purchased from Moreno before they stopped but they all come from Anderson Composites (Seibon).

Thanks for the heads up. It's not that bad, I could wait if I had to do so. Funny part of the story is her husband said "bad ass car, let me know if you ever want to sell it "

Not what I wanted to hear, perhaps I'll just go with the GM part. The dealership won't want to mess with things that don't " just work."

Can you explain your fitment issues. If I got put off for 2 months waiting for this diffuser to be "fitted" it had better fit. I know the bumper cover has to come off to allow it to flex to install the now non-flexing diffuser... Did you have the bumper off during install? PM is you prefer

The 25 something tab's that get pushed into the bumper, are not like the OEM version, they are faux, and cause issues... you'll see. I have get Sebion to install the diffuser on my car, since I'm not willing to risk causing damage to my bumper cover.

Personally I would have just gone OEM.
