    Guys, I am just curious as to whether the 355 I have purchased has the OEM rear diffuser. They seem hanging very low to the ground. The lowest tip of the diffuser is 4 inches from the group, which I think is pretty low, especially when pulling the car in the driveway. I'd appreciate if anyone can verify it for me. Thanks!

    You have aftermarket add-ons. What kind of exhaust is that? Thats not stock either

    I thought so. Thank you for verifying it for me. As for the exhaust system, it is the Mille Miglia (Australian). I do not think it is as popular as Tubi and Capristo.

    The diffusers are at the right height and as was mentioned above they are aftermarket :).

    I was planning on making some 'enhanced diffusers' for my 355 ....... unless these are available and reasonably priced ........ :D.

    Kinda looks like "end plate" add-ons to a stock diffuser, placed on either side of the vertical "fence", to prevent air spilling out around the sides of the diffuser. Could probably be made with flat plastic, riveted on, and replaced when/if they drag too much and wear down. Looks good... like serious aero bits do. I wonder if you would be able to tell the effect of this diffuser at speed.

    Yoshi, your car is awesome. I love the Calipers and the Diffuser.

    Somebody mentioned above that there is a company that makes a Carbon Fiber diffuser for the F355... Any Leads would be appreciated. :)

    Yes, it is the extension. It could be one-off custom extension. I do not know of its material. But, it would look much better if it is in carbon material. It should be easy and cost effective to make if it is just the extension.

    Yup, you can see where they were "Pop riveted" on.
