Imitation carbon-fibre taillights = lose.

Killer DIY sheet metal parts = big win.

What I can tell you right now is that the metal will run about $70, all the mounting hardware and hardware needed is about $50. shipping everything and assembling it varies, but it should come around $200-300. And this one is made for my garage vary bumper so it'll take some time to make it fit on a stock bumper. I'll get back to you.

A friend of mine that owns a shop made something similar for his supercharged miata and around 80-100mph, the car showed a pretty big change in stability. above 100, he found out that he had to even change his mounting points because the diffuser acutally started to pull his bumper off (no it wasnt mounted to the bumper). Its really a nice functional piece to have. I cant wait until I can finish mounting it tomorrow and drive it

No, thats a beatrush piece. That thing has been on the car for a good 3 days now. It works very well and keeps my water temps 15* cooler. underhood temps must have dropped almost dramatically. Pics of it on the car will be up today
