I have the vorsteiner version on my 650I but I have the msport sideskirts which are the same as the m6. As long as you have Msport you are good.

If these are the ones from ebay look deep into reviews. I think they are a few that complain about bad quality/fit.

That pic looks just like the ones made by Sarona. I was really interested until I read the reviews that they had on their website and Facebook page. I'd love to hear how it actually fits. http://www.sarona.com/single_product.php?id=5496

Yep. Skirts and rear bumper are identical. Only fronts, fenders and rear diffuser is different. From my obsessive online shopping, I've discovered that there are 2 options for CF skirts. The second covers much more of the body but is also more expensive. BTW, all Chinese CF stuff is made in the same few factories so it doesn't matter which brand if it's generic (not talking about Vorsteiner, etc.). #2 is on my wish list.

Correct. Fenders are wider on M6's. The actual rear bumper cover piece is the same for all F06,F12,F13 Msport vs M. The same goes with M5's and 528/535/550's. There are a bunch of guys that have bought OE M6 rear diffusers (2 pieces) and installed them on their Msports. The exhaust tips on the M5's/M6's are about 1" closer to the inside so when people use M5/M6 mufflers on their cars without changing out the diffuser, they have to adjust the hangers.

Uh :/ I always thought M6 has identical rear fenders as 650i

I am thinking about purchasing a 650i coupe and upgrade rear end to M6 diffuser, 4x 98 mm exhaust tips and Performance M6 small diffuser ( in the middle of diffuser)





I think this rear end would sit very nice on a regular F12/F13, OEM parts

Fenders are different but rears are the same. That's why you can't run M6 wheels on a 640/650. The middle pic is a non msport car so you will not be able to change that diffuser. You can definitely buy a 650 and buy an OE M6 diffuser and just snap it in (2 pieces, outside and center piece).

You sound pretty knowledgeable about the Chinese carbon fiber and sellers of them so I was hoping to get your thoughts. Most of these seem like they are made by ebmotor.com. Have you had any first hand experience with the products from these guys? I really want to achieve an aggressive look on the rear so getting a M6 diffuser with a v style diffuser is something I would like. I am looking at the ones below. Any thoughts?

I haven't dealt with this vendor but these look similar (probably the same) stuff that you find on ebay as well. These definitely look nicer than the one I purchased but they also cost more.
I didn't want to spend that much so I just went with a single CF diffuser, below:
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/F12-...608.0.0.GKcQsG

Fitment was good but if I had to do it over, I'd rather get a two piece like the ones you're looking at. The issue with the single piece like mine is that inner part, next to the inside muffler tips, don't go very deep back so you see where it ends, which I don't like. Here's a pic of my car to show you what I'm talking about. It's ok but just looks cheap but what did I expect, I guess. Check these out, much cheaper than your links and probably what I'll end up getting after I pick up a front lip.

I see what you are talking about with it not going to deep but until you took an incredibly close up, I never noticed. I think it looks great on your car. I was considering that exact one as well but decided that I liked the one that goes under the M6 diffuser more. Now I am struggling with carbon fiber or body color lip/skirts/diffuser. Not sure if yours is carbon black or sapphire but did you have a tough time deciding between CF or body color? I just haven’t found a car yet with all body color aero parts.

I have a carbon black 640. On my last car, 5-GT, I had the lip, spoiler, skirts painted the body color and it looked nice because it blended with the OE look of the car, especially since the skirts were the entire side skirts, not just extensions. I ended up spending more money in the end than buying CF because painting the separate pieces added another $300+ to the price, plus sometimes aftermarket paint is a gamble. It's really preference but I like CF accent pieces because it gives it an aftermarket aero look, i.e. Vorsteiner, 3D, ACS, etc. For the lip though, CF usually doesn't last very long compared to painted PU.

Appreciate the info! Great informative here. I am definitely thinking CF now. I may give that ebmotor.com site a shot and report back. Their prices are about 1/3 of those from Taiwan. Just hoping fitment is close to the ones from Taiwan. I will post pics but it may be a while since it looks like delivery will take quite some time.
