M3 Diffuser on Stock bumper

Has anyone here put a M3 Diffuser on a stock rear bumper. Does it fit in directly? Any fabricatio to be done? If you have done it can you post pics as I might just change the diffuser to a M3 instead of the whole rear bumper. I want to see how it would look.

Thx

You have to shave the top corners that are on the outside of the diffuser. The OEM diffuser's top corners are squared edges, whereas the non-M bumper accepts rounded edges. That's the only thing you have to change

There are also aftermarket M-style yet not truly M that will fit the non-M bumpers plug and play. Pretty sure understeer sells them
