Hey everybody,

I'm new to the forums. I wanted to post pictures of my Loder1899 Diffuser, purchased from Rebel Devil Customs in Indiana.

The quality of the piece is extremely high. I was pleasantly surprised at how sturdy the diffuser was for being made out of fiberglass. But then again, this piece is made in Germany so I was expecting no less from the build quality. The piece fits like a glove.

Unfortunately for me, somebody backed into my rear bumper in a parking lot, I had a bumper repair guy fix the damage but as I was removing the old valance, I noticed a pretty bad cracking noise. The bumper repair guy had used some type of epoxy on my tabs to keep the oem Diffuser because he had broken them repairing the piece. So please ignore the small little crack on the left side of the bumper, it has nothing to do with the fitment of the Loder piece. If I hadn't had the bumper fixed it would have lined up perfectly. I also VHT'd the reflectors just to see what it would look like. I think I'll have them painted white to match the body so it's a little cleaner.

I would highly recommend this Diffuser or the SS tuning Diffuser to anybody who isn't a fan of the large amount of plastic in the rear of the 2015+ models.

Yeah it was super easy, just 4 screws and a bunch of tabs but I did it all on my own with no jack stands or anything!

How was the shipping from Germany? Was it reasonable or was it all included with getting it from RDC? Forgive my ignorance as I am not sure how it works when getting them from a dealer like that.

But agreed, your Focus looks very clean!

It was all done through Michael at Rebel Devil. I got in with the group buy so I got a killer price and free shipping. But Michael definitely has a good connection with Loder so I'd see what he can do for you. If Michael hadn't carried them, I probably wouldn't have bought it due to the $700 price tag + shipping from Germany..

They're OZ Leggera in gloss black, I went with these because mountune offers them for the RS and they're only 18.5lbs each.

Lightened up the steering response a little, great wheels so far!

Excellent. I really hate the stock black slab of plastic on the 2015+.

I wonder how these would look with stock exhaust tips.

I believe the SS tuning version is meant to work a little bit better with the stock tips.

But I'm sure on either one it would still look great!

I bought it way back in October, you may need to send him an email and ask about it. He may be waiting until his next shipment comes in.

He's pretty quick with responding to emails and phone calls.
