Gents I don't want to rain on your parade. But unless you have a real fast Zed and I mean real fast and take it on the track then I reckon you wouldn't notice any difference having a defuser. Unless you are just going for the look.
If all you Zed fans are after aero dynamics then you need to start at the front of the car. Not the rear. That would be with a G-nose. Other wise you really have a massive parachute at the front if you are running a standard front grill. Not enough down force with a standard front to even make a rear defuser work in my opinion. Then you would need a big wing at the rear to keep the wheels on the ground at high speed. Oh and you will need a fast motor as well. Then and only then would I be looking at spending money on a rear defuser. But even then if you are running a standard rear bumper you are creating unsettle air turbulance around the rear simply by the way it is attached.
Personal opinion only.  :)

Pretty much the only guy here that needs one, has one.
And that is Sinisha!

But I think they are talking about want, not need Craig.  ;)

I just like the look of them, I was worried that the rear of my de-barred z was going to look abit plan.

But the diffuser will break that up, Im not too worried about performance yet :)

I think we should clarify that most of us here are only interested in adding a splitter to a shaved rear end for aesthetic purposes only. These are street cars. We don't need to debate whether they will work or not. We know they won't, hence the reason we've mentioned pinching ones from existing road cars.

Nice job Patch.
Can you use any of these 'nicer' ones?

Tim if you look at the one I done above it looks fine, look at where the pipes are to your tank,  but when I try and put one on your rear end with your pipes so high it doesn't work and shows the bottom white and tank.
BTW yours looks a lot better now with the 4 pipes, just needs chrome tips and the right pipes to line up the same.

Thanks mate. So you need a pic taken from a higher angle. Only the two outside pipes are connected, the inner pipes are dummies. Gives people an idea anyway. Maybe someone else has a pic of theirs.

My idea was only to make a cosmetic  rear skirt basically to break up my shaved rear end. Im not sure how to do it but after lots of research trying to match something up to the zed i decided it was too hard and would make one from scratch. I bought some universal rear bumper lights and will go from there

Hi guys, saxon said u guys need rear diffusers for bumperless ass for sexy zed. I can draw and make it happen. The question is how many of u is ready to fork out the money.
And mostly i see ppl wanting for cosmetic looks. I can make rear add ons that looks like a diffuser and optional real deal diffuser that will work.

Price for the cosmetic one in fiberglass $290-350 mark. In dry carbon around $450-580mark.
The diffuser itself i wont disclose price, untill i see real demand.

If i see enough genuine interest i will start drawing options and let u guys vote. Sounds good?

Provided I don't have to modify the body, I am SO keen. Cosmetic only is fine for me but could easily be swung to a carbon real deal diffuser if the price was right. Also a front diffuser that I don't have to make by hand would be awesome :) Just saying.

Anything is better than looking at the bottom of a fuel tank!
