Looking at getting a Velocitec Rear Diffuser for my 17' ST1, My car is Kona blue, cant decide if I want black, or try to color match it, sadly they do not offer them in my color, do any of the other blues they offer come close to Kona Blue?

Are you talking about the Velossa Tech diffuser fins?

I actually looked it up in case it was some brand I haven't heard of before with a cool rear diffuser. Come to find out it's not even a diffuser at all... lol

I local guy was selling this diffuser with 6 fins,
and a different companies front splitter and side skirts, aeroflow dynamics all for $400.....
I almost bought it all, it was a hell of a deal, but I didn't want mismatched splitter/skits and diffuser.

Would it be considered ricey to have all this aero stuff and not track my car?

Sorry to the OP for jacking his thread also.

The problem is more is for looks. Alot of what's on the market isn't truly functional. This includes what I have on my car.

That diffuser actually looks pretty sick and it's only 264 bucks for the 6 fin setup with black powder coating.

Pretty sweet price

Yeah it's ENTIRELY different with each person you might ask. I personally think it looks awesome. You go to car meets and see some people's body kits and stuff and think "rice" or "junk" then see a SEMA show car that has Aero work like this done to it and think "that looks awesome!" When it really isn't any different of a concept of the other car you called "rice."

You think it looks awesome? Go for it. Personally stuff like this is subtle enough I don't see it as bad.

It's not too over the top obnoxious, it's a fine line to be sure. It's semi functional and looks great. Now putting it on a base focus would be rice, but our cars are fast :D and if you track your car, then its definitely ok IMHO. Not that the diffusers and splitters are all that functional when they are just bolted on like this. Diffuser physics require correct angles and what not to work properly.

That subi, t's done right, not hodge podged, looks clean etc. looks fast as heck!

My only problem with this diffuser is that I don't like how it looks going under the exhaust tips. Looks a little cheese with the big gaps to either side of the tips and the bolts used to connect the pieces together.
