Default Carbon fiber rear diffuser advice

I've been following along for almost a year now, today I signed up.
Have a black on black 2015 F type R with a few mods.
Hope to be adding more mods in the next six months.

Need advice on the best carbon rear diffuser for an R version. Do all need to be drilled to fit the rear sensors? My car is a 2015 blacked out R coupe even the emblems so I want subtle mods to add detail without overkill. Future plans are carbon fiber front splitter, dash, P 7 style grill surround, and the diffuser.
Would really appreciate advice on the rear diffuser options.

Mods
VAP tune
VAP lower pulley

Future mods
Carbon fiber details as listed above
VAP intake
VAP 200 cat exhaust
Lowering springs with spacers

Currently have the P 7 surround and grill

Welocme to the forum! Lurking for a year and no pictures? You will need to make amends and post pictures of that bad boy. Post to the pictures thread. Other members should be along to hopefully answer your questions. Also, if you could add the model, year, etc, info to your signature line it will help in answering questions and responding to your posts.

Many members would surely appreciate some pictures of your Project 7 grill, and the placement of the sensors....

Grill and surround are in the back bedroom. I'm trying to negotiate having one made out of carbon fiber and this one might be used to make the mold. I'll know in a month and then they would produce them for general sale. Once I have enough posts so I can PM I'm going to try and have the sensor mounts made by the 3D printer talked about in the long thread about the P 7 grill.

Those mounts will work quite well if you choose the correct 2 honeycombs in which to mount them.

Have you searched the forum for the rear valence threads? A number of alternatives to the OEM CF valence have been identified.

Avoid the Dizzel one. Ignoring the fact that you can buy same part shipped from China for $300, and the individual/company have no after-sales care, it won't fit and you could make a better quality product in your garden with absolutely no prior experience of laying up carbon fibre.

Thanks, this is the type of information I'm looking for.

Actually they are the company I'm working with to make a P 7 surround. They have a big custom order they are working on and after that we will negotiate the CF surround. I have a real one I got from Jaguar so they may use it to make the mold. They do not offer a rear diffuser unless I completely missed it. They are here in CA so I told them if they need ANYTHING to move this project forward I would drive down there.

Be certain to have them mold or grind a notch into the P7 surround that will accept the tow eye. If they do that, you can add my name to the waiting list. Multiple orders may reduce the unit cost.

Thanks for the input. I'll be certain to ask about this.

Here's the source for that product:

https://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale...08&needQuery=n

What I'm hoping for is feedback from forum members that either have one or have experience/knowledge about one. Like the paramount carbon fiber Project 7 grill and surround, it was of such poor quality it just wasn't workable. I don't want to get one from China that just won't fit. Also no back up light(s) or place to work one in.

User FR500GT said his carbon fiber rear diffuser took a lot of work to get it to fit correctly. I believe he got his from China. You could message him to find out.
I looked into carbon diffusers, but i'm going to guess they all fit poorly. Not worth it.
